Hundreds of mourners packed a Melbourne church Wednesday to bid farewell to an Australian baseball player killed by two teenagers in a random Oklahoma shooting that triggered a race debate.
Mourners line the street outside St Therese's Parish in Melbourne on August 28, 2013 for the funeral of Australian baseball player Chris Lane, who was killed in the small Oklahoma town of Duncan in the US. Lane, 22, was in the US on a baseball scholarship and was jogging in Duncan when he was shot in the back and left to die on the side of the road on August 16.
Chris Lane, 22, was gunned down in the small town of Duncan by a pair of "bored" black teens, aged 15 and 16, as he was out jogging on August 16, reviving debate sparked by the death of black teenager Trayvon Martin in Florida last year.
