A community in New York State brings together three young children who lost their mothers in a weekend shooting.
“I am lost in the face of this tragic loss,” Lashelle Roberson told WGRZ of the death of her friend Rayshionna Johnson. “Never in a million years would I have thought it would happen. But I hope and pray that at a time like this our community can come together and show love for these children. Now motherless.”

Roberson observes Johnson’s children, a group of two-year-old twins and a one-year-old girl, after Johnson is shot and killed at a street party.
Buffalo police looking for suspect
Johnson and four other people were killed at the party Saturday, according to WKBW. Buffalo police are still looking for the suspect, but said the other victims were seriously injured, according to SpectrumNews.
“You took my daughter. You took her body, but her soul is there,” said Katrina Gray, Johnson’s mother.
Roberson is a member of a local anti-violence group called Buffalo FATHERS that solicits donations from community members to help children.
The group is looking for new clothes (due to COVID-19) for a size 2T twin boy and girl and a one-year-old who wears clothes between 12 and 18 months. Gift vouchers are also accepted.
Roberson plans to adopt the children.
“Rayshionna asked me to bring her children and make sure they were okay and I promised her that I would and I intend to keep my promise if I go through this country,” she said.
