SACRAMENTO (CBS13) — A Sacramento mom prayed for a miracle, but instead she’s mourning the death of her son two weeks before Christmas.

The moments leading up to 15-year-old Darron Lee, Jr.’s murder are a mystery his mother fears may never be solved.

“I just sit and think, ‘Who would do this?’ ‘Was he calling for me?’ ‘Was he saying, ‘Mom, help me.’’ I don’t know,” said Audrey Cigler.

She sat next to her son’s hospital bed day and night for 13 days. He never woke up.

“I’m never going to get my son back,” she said. “All I have is memories of him.”

DJ will never learn how to drive, he’ll never go to college, and he’ll never try to become the pro-basketball player he promised his mom he would be so he could take care of her financially.

Sacramento Police say they’re still trying to piece together what happened on Nov. 30. They do know someone shot him in the leg in a Natomas neighborhood on Bandon Way while with friends.

He died from head injuries on Friday.

His Encina Prep High School friends, teachers and coach say they’ll miss the teen who his mom says excelled in school and sports

Cigler wants to know what her son did to deserve an attack so brutal that it left him paralyzed and brain dead, even if he survived.

“He’s just a little boy. Who would do that to him?” she said.
