Funeral for slain brothers scheduled

RUSKIN, Fla. (AP) -- Family members will say goodbye to two Tampa-area brothers gunned down on Thanksgiving as deputies continue to search for their killer.

The Tampa Tribune reported that a funeral for Juan and Sergio Guitron is scheduled for noon Wednesday at a Catholic church in Ruskin, south of Tampa.

The sheriff's office said the Guitron brothers, ages 28 and 22, and four other men were shot at about 2:30 a.m. Thursday by a man who approached them while they were playing poker on a porch in Ruskin. He identified himself as law enforcement and made the men lie face down before the shooting started.

The other four survived.

The sheriff's office said finding the killer is "a top priority."
