As community groups work to address violence, a victim's mother has a message and a plea for help.

Montgomery Police have worked seven homicides in the last 33 days, two of them within hours of each other.

On Wednesday, a group of non-profit groups came together to brainstorm about solutions.

Linda Mushat says it like déjà vu.

"It's like it's going to never end," Mushat said.  

Her son, 31-year-old Taurio Mushat, was shot and killed Sunday.

Linda showed us a photo of him taken the day of Taurio's brother's funeral, Jervarin Mushat. He was gunned down in front of his mother's home on Christmas Day of 2011.

"Every since my son got killed, I haven't felt nothing; not nothing," Mushat said. "I'm not angry at the people who did it. I'm just angry with my son for trying to help somebody that didn't him to help. He was trying to stop two of his friends from fighting. They started shooting after he let them go. He was shot in the back and in the leg."

Taurio leaves behind six children that Linda and his wife will have to care for. Linda has three kids left and 21 grandchildren.

"I would just like for the young people to stop killing each other," Mushat said. "If you feel like you have to hurt somebody just pick up a bible and read a scripture of something."

She says she couldn't bear to lose another child.

"I don't know what we are going to do. We didn't have insurance and we are trying now to bury him."

Mushat's body is currently at Cummings Funeral Home on Bragg Street, just feet from where he was gunned down. The family is asking anyone who wishes to donate funds to give directly to the Cummings Funeral Home.

The two suspects in Sunday's shooting. Lamarian Hood and Arsenio Hall are in custody charged with murder.
