BUFFALO, NY (WKBW) - It was an emotional day Thursday for the loved ones of 32-year-old Tiffany Wilhite and 27-year-old Shawntia McNeil as hundreds showed for their wake services at True Bethel Baptist Church.

The two women were cousins and were preparing to start their careers after taking courses at the UB Educational Opportunity Center, and both were looking forward to getting married soon.

The two were among the eight shot and four killed outside the City Grill early Saturday morning. Police were present during the wake services Thursday, as officers continue to search for the shooter. The church and community members are preparing to offer a cash reward for information leading to an arrest.

The funeral services for Wilhite and McNeil are being held Friday afternoon at True Bethel Baptist Church.
