According to the Atlanta Journal Constitution, shooting victim Asheley Jewell was discharged home from Grady Memorial hospital.
“She is at home and progressing daily,” her cousin, Ebony Phillips, wrote Wednesday in an email to the AJC.
Asheley, 15, was shot in the back of the head as she traveled in a car with friends on Old National highway on Saturday, March 5th. No suspect has been arrested in the apparent road-rage incident.
Family and friends are organizing an event from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday to keep the spotlight focused on the crime and to increase public awareness that a dangerous individual is still loose on our streets. They plan to canvass the area around Old National highway, passing out flyers.
A $2,000 reward is being offered for information about the suspect or suspects. They’re calling it “Justice for Asheley Jewell Day.”
Anyone interested in participating should contact organizers through the Justice for Asheley Jewell Facebook page.
Asheley is the daughter of Ashley Jewell, who died from complications following a fight at a strip club in 2009. He was featured on ‘Real Housewives of Atlanta’ with cast member Kandi Burruss, who he had been engaged to.
