The solemn, music-filled service at Antioch Baptist Church for Terence Crutcher, 40, drew hundreds of mourners, many of whom fanned themselves or stood to sing and applaud on a warm evening in north Tulsa.

A weeklong ceasefire agreed between the United States and Russia ended on Monday and efforts to revive the so-called cessation of hostilities (CoH) failed.
