Woman Horrified By What She Sees At Crime Scene

A father, son and another man walked out of a liquor store in San Bernardino, California on Friday night. Just 30 seconds after leaving the store, all three were dead.

Travon Williams Jr., age 9, was in the store with his father, Travon Lamar Williams, 26. The two were accompanied by Samathy Mahan, 25. Travon asked his father for some candy. The child danced out the door, candy in hand, without a care in the world. His father and Mahan followed.

The store manager Saifaldin Baji said that's when shots were heard. The two men and young boy were gunned down right in front of the store. "It was 30 seconds to kill three people," said Baji.

Reports say that at 9:15 pm the three exited the shop when an armed man came up behind them. He had a handgun and shot them all dead in cold blood.

Police suspect this was a gang shooting. Mahan was a known gang member and suspected target.

Ebony Newman, 27, arrived in a car at the scene when she learned about the murder, but had no idea that it was her son and ex-boyfriend who were killed. She got out of the car with her husband (Travon's stepfather) and two daughters. Her son was laying there with his face covered.

“I pulled up to the scene, thinking it’s another situation in San Bernardino, and it’s my baby,” she said, hysterically crying. “What mom in her mind would think, that’s my baby? This is not right. This is not right.”

A video surveillance camera caught a glimpse of the suspect and police are investigating. It’s not known what ties Williams had to Mahan, but friends and family of Williams say the rapper and dancer was not a gang-banger.
