Meeting planned in Phoenix suburb on mass shooting

Police in a Phoenix suburb are holding a community meeting to discuss the case of a former neo-Nazi who they believe shot and killed four people before turning a gun on himself.

The Arizona Republic reports ( ) Gilbert police will talk to residents Thursday night at City Council chambers. They'll provide an overview of the investigation and address "topics and concerns relating to domestic violence."

The meeting takes place hours after a private funeral at a local church for 47-year-old Lisa Mederos, 23-year-old Amber Mederos and 15-month-old Lilly.

Authorities believe 39-year-old Jason Todd "JT" Ready shot and killed those three and 24-year-old Jim Hiott on May 2 before killing himself in a domestic dispute.

Ready was a former member of the neo-Nazi National Socialist Movement and led a civilian border patrol group known as the U.S. Border Guard.
