(Scroll down for video) A family is shocked over the sudden loss of two family members in California.

Las Vegas Metropolitan Police officer Charleston Hartfield died in a mass shooting earlier this month.

He was buried this week, and two days after his funeral, his family members said goodbye to his mother Sheryl “Sissy” Stiles.

The family wrote on GofundMe that Stiles had a heart attack after attending her son’s funeral on Friday evening.

She had been staying at a hotel with family members as they grieved the loss of her son when she suffered a heart attack while using an escalator.

Stiles fell down the escalator at the South Point Casino and sustained brain damage. She was removed from life support on Sunday.

The slain officer’s uncle, Lou Stiles, said that he came from Louisville, Kentucky, to attend his nephew’s funeral and now he will say goodbye to his sister as well.

Family members believe that Stiles died of a broken heart after losing her beloved son.
