Funeral Held for Man Shot After Fender-Bender

A funeral is being held for a man shot and killed after a minor fender-bender.

The Jersey Journal reports 36-year-old father Michael Settles is being remembered Friday at Porter Memorial Church of God in Christ in Jersey City.

Settles was pronounced dead shortly after 11 p.m. on April 11 after he was shot by an unidentified man near his grandmother's home.

The Hudson County Prosecutor's Office says no one has been charged yet.

Authorities say Settles had an argument with a motorist in a minivan.

Settles' family says his cousin separated the two men and they parted ways. They say the killer returned on foot and shot Settles.

The driver of the minivan had bumped into Settles' vehicle but neither vehicle sustained any visible damage.
