A mother was shot dead this week while visiting her son’s grave on his 22nd birthday, the family said.
Pictures from the cemetery showed bullet holes covering the side of a Chevy Camaro surrounded by crime scene tape.
The family said Yolanda N’Gaojia, 52, died after the shooting March 22 at the Calvary Baptist Church Garden of Memories cemetery in Killeen, Texas.
N’Gaojia’s ex-husband Kineh said in a Facebook post, “I have no words because I can’t believe this is real.”
He told local CBS affiliate KWTX that N’Gaojia was visiting her son Amir Tajai-Kineh N’Gaojia’s grave when she was shot.
Killeen Police confirmed a second victim had non-life threatening injuries following the shooting and was being treated at the scene.
Police were called to the area just after 5 p.m. Tuesday. They released some details about the incident.
N’Gaojia’s ex-husband identified her as a victim and said the couple have three children together but are divorced.
“It’s stuff you see in movies, but it’s become our lives. I can’t believe you’re gone,” his Facebook post continued.
In another post, he said, “‘My kids will never be the same again.
Another son, Q Jones N’Gaojia, posted a photo with his mother on Facebook with the caption, “Love you mom. Stay with me.”
Although it is not clear what the cause of Amir’s death was, Facebook posts and obituaries show that he died on New Year’s Day 2022 at the age of 21 Daily Mail reported.
He reportedly had a criminal history that included aggravated assault with a deadly weapon Killeen Daily Herald reported.
