Milwaukee mom speaks out after 2 brothers murdered hours apart on the same street
MILWAUKEE (CBS58) -- Milwaukee's violent weekend claimed the lives of two brothers. They were both killed Friday, May 13, near 22nd Keefe.
Robin McNeal says she's a broken-hearted mother.
"Nobody should deserve this pain," McNeal said.
McNeal could barely look at her son's photo up against a tree near a memorial. Milwaukee police say 23-year-old Tyquawn Williams was shot and killed. McNeal says he was sitting in his car parked outside their home. Broken glass still lingers and several bullet holes paint a picture of what happened that Friday afternoon.
"I just seen the car pull up and start shooting at my baby," said McNeal.
The shooting happened around 1:13 p.m. Five hours later, McNeal got another hard punch to the gut. Williams' half brother was murdered too on the same block near the same house.
"I was at the hospital with Tyquawn, I got the call about Money," said McNeal.
"Money" is also known as 33-year-old Hershel McCradic.
"Their relationship was unbreakable, unbreakable for them," McNeal said.
"I didn't prepare myself for this," Williams' sister, Chettarrius Chesser.
Police are still investigating both deaths. Meanwhile, McNeal questions will the city of Milwaukee ever heal.
"Pray for us Lord, pray for this city, pray for everybody that just lost somebody because this is pain I wouldn't put on nobody," McNeal said.
