Family and friends said their final goodbyes to Fred and Freddy Swiger, at their funeral on Friday morning. The service was held at Davis-Weaver Funeral home on Main Street in Clarksburg.

The father and son were gunned down while they were delivering newspapers for the Exponent Telegram along Locust Avenue.

At the service the pastor said, "This could've happen to anyone. It's just unfortunate that it happened at all."

Dozens of people packed the chapel at the funeral home to pay their final respects.

The Swigers were two of the four people killed in last week's drug related shooting. Police said they believe it was all caused by an argument the other two victims had with the shooter over a $10,000 drug debt.

According to investigators, Sydney Muller confessed to killing Christopher Hart, Todd Amos and both of the Swigers.

The community has been in an uproar since the incident. People have publicly asked city leaders and police to combat the increase of drug activity in the area.

Here's another murderer that needs to be put to death instead of putting him in prison for life and costing the taxpayers more money.
