Mom killed visiting her son’s grave for his ‘first birthday in heaven’ – rest in peace

A Texas mother was shot and killed on Tuesday while visiting the grave of her late son, according to shocking reports.

Yolanda N’Gaojia was fatally shot at the Calvary Baptist Church Garden of Memories Cemetery in Killeen, Texas, just after 5 p.m. Police said that a second victim had also sustained injuries, but that they were not life-threatening.

In the wake of the tragedy, Yolanda’s ex-husband, Kineh N’Gaojia, wrote on Facebook: “I have no words because I can’t believe this is real.

“This is stuff you see [in] movies but it has become our life. I can’t believe you are gone… how y’all gonna kill her on her Son birthday at his gravesite???”

According to Kineh, Yolanda had been shot and killed while visiting the grave site of her 22-year-old son Amir, who passed away on New Year’s Day. Amir was one of three children shared by the couple.

“My children will never be the same again,” Kineh wrote in a second Facebook post.

“Those bullets took a precious gem from us but gave us an Amazing Angel to guide us so you know we ain’t going nowhere but up cause we know how hard you rode for your family.”

Police in Killeen say that the shooting is being investigated as a murder, but is believed to be “an isolated incident”.

My heart goes out to the family of this poor woman. Sometimes I simply can’t believe how much cruelty there is in the world.
