An Oakland mother has no more children left after gun violence claimed both of her two sons’ lives in a span of less than three weeks.

Her youngest son, who was only 13 years old, was gunned down on New Year’s Eve on 104th Avenue near Walnut Street. Her oldest son was shot and killed Sunday, near the intersection of 100th Avenue and Longfellow, 19 days after her 13-year-old was killed.

“Hopefully the community people will come forward,” Dinyal New said, “because how can a mother experience two losses within 19 days? Both her kids. It’s horrible.”

New said no words can describe her grief. She is mourning the death of 19-year-old son Lamar Broussard less than a week after burying her youngest son, Lee Weathersby.
