The family of Asheley Jewell will hold a candlelight vigil for her this Saturday near the location where she was wounded in an apparent road rage incident on March 5.

Jewell, 15, was shot in the back of the head when the car she was traveling in was fired upon by someone in another vehicle on Old National Highway near Jerome Road. Asheley remains in critical condition in the ICU at Grady hospital.

Anyone with information on the incident is urged to call Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477.

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."

Asheley is the daughter of Ashley "A.J." Jewell, who was briefly engaged to former Xscape singer Kandi Burruss. Jewell died in 2009 following a fight in the parking lot of a now defunct Atlanta strip club. Jewell called off his engagement to Burruss shortly before he died.

    :pray: for a speedy and complete recovery for her and for the capture of the coward who shot into a car and continued on. May this family find some peace and closure to heal.

  • West Coast Chick

    This is just too sad. She is a beautiful girl.. I hope she pulls through, I hope the person responsible gets the "book" thrown at him/ her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Phrozen1der

    May God continue to keep her on earth and in his hands.... :pray:

  • http://sandrarose.com Sandra Rose

    I'm wondering why Kandi hasn't put up a cash reward for information leading to the shooter?

  • GoldenGurl

    It amazes me how people can commit such horrible crimes and have no conscience about it. When they get caught, I hope they are prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. My prayers go out to the family and friends of this young lady and may she recover soon.

    @Sandra Rose

    All I can tell you is that if the young girl was my family member, I wouldnt let kandi
    NO WHERE NEAR HER....

    And that's all I'mma say about that.

  • Redeemed777

    Some people won't get caught because their day is reserved for judgment day, especially these so-called innocent celebs.

    ^^^^^^

    Are you the so-called redeem that these folks on here was talkin bout????

    Since I already made a fool out of myself in regards to Kandi, I won't ask you to expand on that comment. :coffee:

    @Sandra Rose

    kandi probably didnt put up no cash reward because she broke & needs more mammon..er...money, and the young girl was supposed to be her 2nd offering for more mammon...

    Who Knows.

  • Candi Apple

    I pray that this baby has a speedy recovery. Bless her and her family.

  • sanaas

    I also pray for a speedy recovery for this young lady, Kandi did say last night on ustream that she is showing some signs of improvement and also added that everyone please continue to pray for her. She said that she will not say anymore out of respect for the family..

    @Sandra Rose

    I’m wondering why Kandi hasn’t put up a cash reward for information leading to the shooter?

    --------------------------

    Kandi strikes me a cheap. like the type that will buy 10 $20 pairs of jeans. And it seems like no money leaves her hands unless it benefits her. memba how easy she let Ne Ne talk her out of a larger donation to Sheree's charity? She wasn't never gonna give that much so she folded as soon as Ne Ne said something.

    I hope this individual is apprehended ASAP.

    My prayers are with Asheley Jewell and her family.

    Well I hope that this young lady pulls through. She sure didnt deserve for this to happen to her. Its a shame that even during tragic times, you can still be so mean and foul.

    What does this even have to do with the topic at hand. This girl is in critical condition but you just cant miss a chance to pour salt in Kandi's wounds. I dont know what she did to you, if anything, but to bring it into this situation is very rude and shameful.

    WHy is it assumed that Kandi should offer an award... SO is she supposed to offer an award for anyone who hurts anyone she has ever come in contact with... Please.... money does not heal no does it make what happened go away. Prayer is more powerful....

    dang the vigil like 2 min from my house. maybe kandi hasnt did anything because she didnt really know the girl? shes a teen so maybe she lives with her mom and wasnt around much when him and kandi was dating

    _______________
    That's not the case. Kandi became the legal guardian of the twins after her and AJ decided to take a break. AJ's mother had custody of them and felt like it was too much responsibility at the time. So, I would think that she knows the girl(s).

  • ALBoy

    I thought that this was Not one of the twins :shrug: praying for her recovery

  • Alex

    @AL
    No, she's one of the twins.

  • thaspinaltruth

    I pray for her speedy recovery.

    Hm...I guess Redeemed and 2012 aren't the same person after all. My apologies for thinking that they were.

    They both still seem to be cut from the same cloth though.

    Lawd - I pray her father is watching over her - Both of her Fathers in Heaven....

    Im so suspect of Kandi due the way she broke up with AJ over what her mother kept saying to her!

  • ALBoy

    @ YSO dont start that! :no:

    i don't believe she is one of the twins. SR had a pic of the twins up recently and she wasn't one of them.

    Some reports were saying it was one of the twins and they kept including the pic of the twins. But I see other reports that says she's not one of the twins.
