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.
