OKLAHOMA CITY -

A grieving mother of a murder victim spoke on Wednesday about her son's recent death. The 22-year-old was gunned down at a party in northwest Oklahoma City last Friday.

Traci Davis got the call no parent ever wants to get. Her son Tybreko Davis was shot and killed at the Raindance Apartments near Northwest 122nd and Pennsylvania Avenue. 

“I’m grieving,” said Traci Davis, the victim’s mother. “I’m grieving so hard and I’m trying to stay strong.”

Davis said her son's death is still not real. She rushed to the apartments after getting word he was fatally shot in the chest.

“I never thought my baby would be gone on his birthday,” said Davis.  

The youngest of five boys just turned 22 years old and was invited to a party. Police said a fight broke out at the party and according to a court document 17-year-old Aundre Cade admitted to firing a gun.

The affidavit indicated when first responders and police got to the scene the victim had already passed. Davis said witnesses told her a different account.

“That my baby had lived for a while and they were begging these cops to do something for my baby,” said Davis. “Those police officers did not help my baby.”

She was not sure if anyone rendered first aid while her son was on the ground.

“Didn’t even administer nothing, nothing,” said Davis. “I mean nothing. They never once did CPR. They had shockers down by them.”

The grieving mother believed her son deserved help in his final moments. She is now left with a lot of unanswered questions about that night.

“There were so many police officers out there,” said Davis. “I never even got one police officer to console us. They were away from us. They never even told us about what happened.”

Police arrested the suspect three days after the shooting. He told investigators he did not realize anyone was shot.
