Friends and family remembered an East Chicago, Ind., man who was shot to death after returning from Afghanistan with the Indiana National Guard.

Visitation for Sgt. Willie Cook, 25, took place Sunday. His funeral was set for Monday.

Cook was in his car in front of his grandmother's house when he was killed last Saturday. His toddler son was in the back seat and was wounded in the shooting.

Investigators believe the shooting may have been a case of mistaken identity.
