  • Three days after burying her 13-year-old son, Dinyal New‘s grief intensified when her 19-year-old son was gunned down just blocks from their home, reports ABC News.

    “All my boys are gone,” said New, 41. “I’m numb. I am stunned. I am mad. I am angry and hurt. I hope that somebody please comes forward if they saw something to tell the police.”

    New’s 13-year-old son Lee Weathersby III was gunned down on New Year’s Eve approximately one mile from their home. His older brother Lamar Broussard was shot and killed 19 days later a few blocks from their home in East Oakland.

    No arrests have been made. An Oakland police spokesperson said the department is looking into the possibility that the slayings are linked.

    “They were good boys, both of them,” Lee Weathersby Jr., who is Lee Weathersby III’s father and Broussard’s stepfather, told the San Francisco Chronicle on Monday. “We’re not supposed to be burying our children. It’s supposed to be the other way around. They’re supposed to looking out for us.”
