Hundreds attend memorial service for slain son of Oakland councilwoman

Victor McElhaney, the son of Oakland City Councilwoman Lynette Gibson McElhaney and a USC music student was remembered during a memorial service at Oakland Temple Hill on Saturday afternoon. McElhaney was 21 when he was shot to death on March 10, 2019, in a failed robbery attempt near the USC campus in Los Angeles. The councilwoman did not speak during the memorial service but she released a statement the day of her loss.
“Victor was a 21-year-old senior at USC Thornton School of Music, where he was pursuing his lifelong love of music with some of the greats. Victor was a son of Oakland. He was a musician who drew his inspiration from the beat, soul, and sound of the Town and he belonged in every nook and cranny of Oakland.
“I miss my baby. Please keep me, my family, and all of my son’s friends in your thoughts and prayers. We are beginning a new chapter in this reoccurring circle of violence,” she added. “And it will take all of us together to make it through this tragedy.”
