The facility is on lockdown “out of an abundance of caution” following the shooting, the hospital said in a statement.
It was not immediately known if there were any fatalities, or if any suspects were in custody.
Police had indicated five people were wounded, the funeral home said, but the extent of the wounds and identities of those wounded were not immediately known.
Images from the cemetery showed crime scene tape and law enforcement officials around a white casket that had yet to be lowered into the grave.
The shooting comes the day after a gunman killed his surgeon and three other people at a Tulsa medical office.
It’s the latest in a series of mass shootings in United States including the deadly school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, and an attack on a supermarket in Buffalo, New York.
