Family and friends on Monday packed Spring Baptist Church to attend a funeral service for Joshua Devon Broussard. More than 70 law enforcement officers also were on hand to provide security.

A memorial service was disrupted Sunday night when shots were fired outside the church. No injuries were reported and no arrests have been made.

Prosecutors have charged 17-year-old Luis Alonzo Alfaro with murder. He was being held Monday on a murder charge with bond set at $140,000.

Broussard was fatally stabbed during a fight at Spring High School, located 20 miles north of Houston.

Investigators blame gang rivalry for the fight, which also injured three.
