Funeral Service Held for Omaha Girl Killed by Stray Bullet

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) - A service has been held for a 5-year-old Omaha girl killed by a stray bullet.  More than 200 people gathered Thursday at Clair Memorial United Methodist Church for Payton Benson. The young girl's picture was on projector screens, a church program and several T-shirts.  Payton's mother, Tabitha Manning, thanked attendees for coming to her daughter's "last party" so they could celebrate her life.  Payton died Jan. 15 after a stray bullet entered her north Omaha home. Authorities say the bullet was connected to a shooting about a block away that involved multiple people, weapons and gunfire.  Several Omaha leaders attended the service, including Mayor Jean Stothert and several city council members.
