A survivor of a series of shootings in southwestern Michigan that killed six people has been honored at a church with prayer, praise and $19,200.

Tiana Carruthers cried as she appeared in a wheelchair Sunday at Galilee Baptist Church in Kalamazoo. WOOD-TV says she called them "tears of joy."

Carruthers was one of two people injured during the shootings in the Kalamazoo area Feb. 20.

Authorities have said she shielded children from danger during the attack.

The former president of a motorcycle club who was accused of stealing money from a fundraiser for a Kalamazoo police officer who was killed while on duty in 2011 has been sentenced to five months in jail.

Fifty-five-year-old Joseph Weeks Sr. of Kalamazoo County's Comstock Township earlier pleaded no contest to embezzlement from a nonprofit.

A no contest plea isn't an admission of guilt but is treated as such for sentencing.
