The Holland Sentinel reports that Brandon Kuiper's funeral will be at 7 p.m. at Hudsonville Congregational United Church of Christ in Hudsonville. His family will meet friends at the church from 5-8 p.m. Thursday and 5-7 p.m. Friday.

Kuiper was shot March 6 in the basement of a Tallmadge Township home. He died two days later at a Grand Rapids hospital.

Police said Richard Usher, 18, shot Kuiper in the face during a game of Russian roulette.

Kuiper's death has been ruled a homicide and Usher has been charged with manslaughter.



Why isn't this more important than the bucs winning a basketball game? This poor boy.
