Friends and relatives of Asheley Jewell, the 15-year-old wounded in an apparent road rage shooting, will hold a candlelight vigil Saturday near the site of the shooting, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution. Asheley, a Stephenson High School sophomore who was shot in the head, remains in critical condition. Asheley’s father was the former fiance of “RHOA” cast member and singer/songwriter Kandi Burruss.
The vigil will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday at O’Reilly Auto Parts, 5549 Old National Highway in College Park.
“The vigil is a step toward healing a family victimized by senseless violence,” said Jewell’s cousin, attorney Ebony Phillips. “It is also a call for justice in hopes that someone will come forward with invaluable information about this case. Although nothing can undo the events of March 5, 2011, the family is hopeful that justice will prevail.”
