As Philadelphia police continue to investigate the worst mass shooting there in six years, relatives of two brothers killed, one of them a popular Delaware resident, are making plans to lay them to rest Saturday.

The funeral service for Robert Norris, 41, of Newark, and his brother Mark Norris, 46, of Pilesgrove, N.J., will be at 1 p.m. at Cornerstone United Methodist Church in Bear. Visitation hours will be from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the church, located at 3135 Summit Bridge Road, a church employee said.

Robert Norris was a 15-year veteran of the New Castle County Police, retiring last year to pursue the business venture that ultimately got him killed, police believe. Norris starred on the University of Delaware football team before his law-enforcement career.

The Norris brothers were killed about 8:30 p.m. Monday by 44-year-old Bear resident Vincent Dortch, who went by his middle name, Julius, at a supposed business meeting in a second-floor conference room at the office of Zigzag Net, a marketing company located in a building at the former Philadelphia Naval Shipyard.

Dortch also killed James Reif, 42, of Endicott, N.Y., and critically wounded a fourth man, Zigzag Net employee Patrick Sweeney, 31, of Maple Shade, N.J., before shooting himself to death.

Sweeney was in critical condition Wednesday in a Philadelphia hospital, police said.

New Castle County Police spokesman Cpl. Trinidad Navarro said officers are planning to form a college fund for Robert Norris' three children, who range from 8 to 15 years old.

Meanwhile, a fourth man whom Dortch also had plans to kill said no money had been lost in the real estate investment deal that spurred Dortch's deadly rampage.

Dortch believed that he and two other investors lost money, perhaps a half-million dollars or more, on a plan to turn a former IBM conference center near Binghamton, N.Y., into an entertainment and banquet facility, according to police.

Philadelphia Homicide Lt. Phil Riehl said Dortch had invested his wife's retirement money, but he was uncertain how much that was. Dortch claimed he lost "somewhere in the neighborhood of $200,000," Riehl said.

Police had not yet determined if Dortch's claim was true.

Investor Vasantha Dammavalam said the investment group, Watson International, was moving forward with the conference center idea, despite some setbacks.

Watson bought the property, formerly known as Traditions at the Glen, about a year ago for $1.33 million from a company that had bought it from IBM.

The worst flooding in at least 70 years hit the region in June and damaged the property. But Watson had insurance, and the company settled with its insurer about a month ago, Dammavalam said.

"The check has been issued, but it has not been cashed yet," he said Wednesday.

Dammavalam declined to go into specifics, but said Watson's development plan had been "going quite well."

Dammavalam said he was horrified when police told him Tuesday that Dortch had intended to drive to New York and kill him after Monday night's shootings in Philadelphia.

The two other investors, who attended the meeting with Dortch but weren't harmed, talked Dortch out of it, police said.

The shootings occurred after Dortch got the three men, all Watson International executives, together under the pretense that he had another investor, police said.

Dammavalam said he had been on a conference call at the beginning of the meeting, but was disconnected before Dortch opened fire.

Dortch and his wife, Stephanie, had been members of the Congregation of Jehovah's Witnesses in Elkton, Md., since it was founded a year and a half ago, said Minister John Higgins.

Always "jolly" and wearing a smile, Dortch showed up almost every Sunday, as well as for meetings on Mondays and Bible study on Wednesdays, Higgins said.

The 117-member congregation is shocked and taken aback, Higgins said. The Dortches always seemed happy.

"We just don't know what makes people snap sometimes," Higgins said. "It's a shame. It's a sorry shame."
