    Hundreds of people gathered Monday to say a final goodbye to a Cedar Park man. Leander ISD Coach Adam Ladner was shot and killed last month over a noise complaint.

    Family and friends gathered for his funeral at Gateway Church in northwest Austin. Guests were encouraged to dress in bright colors and burnt orange.

    Larry Smith is charged in Ladner's murder. Investigators say Smith called police for a noise complaint, but Ladner went to Smith's home after officers investigated the complaint and left -- that's when they got in a fight and Smith shot and killed Ladner, according to court documents.

    Smith is out on a $300,000 bond.
