(Scroll down for video) A woman lost her only two children to gun violence.

Dinyal New, 41, of California, is mourning the loss of her two children.

The two brothers were shot dead in unrelated incidents just 19 days apart.

The mother said that she did not have the strength to positively identify her children after their deaths, instead, a relative had to do it for her.

New’s youngest son, Lee Weathersby, was only 13-years-old when he was shot dead as he walked home from the Boys and Girls Club of Oakland.

Nineteen days later, her eldest son, Lamar Broussard, 19, died when the car he and a friend were in, was sprayed with bullets.

“I’m still numb about Lee’s death,” the broken hearted mother said.

“I do not know if my heart has enough space to handle the death of Lamar. This is like a dream right now,” she added.

Police are investigating the deaths of both children, and so far, they seem to be unrelated.
