A MOTHER was shot dead this week while visiting her son's gravesite on what would have been his 22nd birthday, family said.
Images from the cemetery showed bullet holes covering the side of a Chevy Camaro surrounded by crime scene tape.
Family said Yolanda N'Gaojia, 52, died following the March 22 shooting at 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 after the shooting and was treated at the scene.
