Funeral held for 3 children shot by mother in Tabernacle
TABERNACLE, N.J. (AP) — Mourners have said their goodbyes to three children shot by their mother before she killed herself at their southern New Jersey home.
A funeral Mass for 14-year-old Nicholas Harriman, 11-year-old Alexander Harriman and 8-year-old Nadia Harriman was held Saturday afternoon in Tabernacle, a town in the New Jersey Pinelands about 30 miles east of Philadelphia.
Seneca High School sophomore Brittany Goldy tells South Jersey Times that the family exchanged handshakes and hugs with well-wishers inside Church of the Holy Eucharist.
Police say 44-year-old Jeannine LePage shot the three children inside the family's home Nov. 20 before turning the gun on herself. It's not known what provoked the shooting.
Two of the children died at the scene. LePage and Alexander died later at a hospital.
