The grieving mother of two brothers, shot dead within three weeks of one other has urged that there be no reprisals for the killings.

California mother Dinyal New (41) admitted that she didn't have the strength to positively identify both of her sons, instead asking relatives to do so for her, according to local.

New's younger son, 13-year-old Lee Weathersby, was shot dead on December 13 while he was walking home from a youth club.

Then, 19 days later, her older son, Lamar Broussard (19) died when the car he and a friend were in was riddled bullets, KGO reports.

“Somebody’s failing these kids,” New told NBC Bay Area. “They feel like it’s OK to murder these kids. They have no remorse or understanding afterwards.”
