In KILLEEN, TEXAS, a teenager named Christian Lamar Weston was accused of shooting and killing a 52-year-old woman named Yolanda N’Gaojia on March 22, 2022 while she was reportedly visiting her dead son’s grave on his 22nd birthday in the cemetery of the Calvary Baptist Church Garden of Memories.
According to Fox News, police were called to the scene around 5 p.m. on March 22 and said two people had been shot and injured. About two hours later, N’Gaojia was pronounced dead. The second victim had some injuries, but they were not life-threatening. Weston, who is 17, has been charged with murder.
A 15-year-old Texas boy has been accused of killing his mother while she was holding her grandchild.
A 9-year-old girl killed her 4-year-old brother with a broomstick and her aunt was arrested for child molestation.
KXXV says Weston is being held without bond on charges of murder. He is also required to pay a $5,000 bail for carrying a gun without a license, which is a separate charge. The investigation is ongoing and it is said the teenager will be taken to Bell County Jail.
In a news release, the Killeen Police Department said officers were dispatched to Block 13000 of State Highway 195 on March 22 following a shooting. Authorities say when officers arrived they found two people who had been shot dead. One person was taken to hospital, but the other person died from his injuries and was pronounced dead at 6:56 p.m. At that time, however, no one knew who the dead man was. Kineh N’Gaojia, the woman’s ex-husband, told KWTX that according to his obituary, she was at the grave of her son Amir, who was from New Jersey and died on New Year’s Day this year. He was one of the three children the couple had.
The husband also wrote on Facebook how he was feeling. He said: “I don’t know what to say because I can’t believe what is happening. You see that in movies, but we live it every day. I can’t believe you’re gone Yolanda N’Gaojia.”
Reports from KWTX also said that a Chevrolet Camaro with bullet holes and tape around it was seen at the scene. The Killeen Police Department said the shooting was a one-off.
When police said Weston was arrested on August 14, the husband wrote: “I hope he gets the death penalty.”
