HIGH POINT, N.C. (AP) - Police in North Carolina are still looking for suspects after a man was killed outside a church during what authorities said was a "violent and brazen'' drive-by shooting.

The Charlotte Observer reported Wednesday that High Point police are looking for at least two different vehicles. One is a "newer model'' four-door Dodge Charger. The other is a white, four-door car. Investigators said that 60 to 70 spent shells from multiple weapons were found outside the church.

It had been hosting a funeral service on Sunday for "a young man who had died in October.'' Fredrick Cox Jr. died at the scene outside Living Water Baptist Church.

Police said that several others suffered minor injuries.
