Ebony Newman walked by Superior Liquor & Grocery in San Bernardino on Friday night, she knew there had been another shooting…but never knew it was her son.
On Saturday she returned to the scene of her son’s death, overcome with grief as she slammed her palms on the pavement.
‘He was my world, and somebody took that away because they were angry,’ she yelled through tears.
‘That’s not right. He didn’t get a chance to live a life.’
Ebony sobbed after learning her son Travon Williams, his father 26-year-old Travon Lamar Williams and a friend, 25-year-old Samathy Mahan had been murdered.
An employee of the liquor store told the Los Angeles Times the soon-to-be fifth grader had asked his father for some candy before leaving the store.
He jumped for joy when his father agreed.
As the trio left the store, Travon happy with his candy selection, a man waiting outside approached and shot dead the three, San Bernardino Police Sgt. Vicki Cervantes said Saturday.
