"While she was lighting candles for her son, her life was taken," Tucker's friend Michelle Tharpe wrote on the GoFundMe page for the family's funeral expenses.

"This world is so cold."

“It’s just sad that this whole family , basically, to be killed over time,” said Donovan Price, a pastor who said he consoled Tucker at her son's vigil. “I’m devastated.”

Police responded to the scene at around 12:15 a.m. on Wednesday after reports of gunshots were made. Tucker was found lifeless on the sidewalk near the 200 block of West 110th Place. She was taken to Roseland Community Hospital, where she was pronounced dead.

Police said they found no witnesses in the area of the shooting, and a suspect has not been found for the murder of Tucker or her son. Tucker's son was reportedly gunned down at the exact same spot days earlier.

LA Kings Lemieux suspended 5 games for biting Tkachuk

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles Kings forward Brendan Lemieux has been suspended for five games for biting Ottawa’s Brady Tkachuk last weekend.

The NHL announced the discipline Monday night for Lemieux, who will forfeit $38,750 in salary while under suspension.

The bite happened late in the third period of the Kings’ 4-2 win last Saturday at Staples Center. Lemieux was prone on the ice and wrestling with Tkachuk and a linesman when he bit Tkachuk on the right hand.

Lemieux received a match penalty for his actions. Tkachuk was understandably furious afterward, calling Lemieux’s actions “the most gutless thing somebody could ever do.”

“Kids don’t even do that anymore. Babies do that,” Tkachuk added. “I don’t even know what he was thinking. He’s just a complete brick head. He’s got nothing up there. Bad guy, bad player, but what a joke he is.”

The 25-year-old Lemieux is the American-born son of infamous NHL agitator Claude Lemieux, while Tkachuk is the son of NHL veteran Keith Tkachuk, who racked up 2,219 penalty minutes in his two-decade career.

Brendan Lemieux joined the Kings last March in a trade with the New York Rangers. He has four goals, one assist and 32 penalty minutes — 14 against the Senators — in 14 games this season for LA.

The Kings hosted the Anaheim Ducks on Tuesday night.
