The AJC is reporting that friends and relatives of Asheley Jewell, the 15-year-old critically wounded in an apparent road rage incident, will hold a candlelight vigil Saturday near the site of the shooting.
As we previously reported, Jewell was shot in the head on Saturday evening on Old National Highway.
Jewell, a Stephenson High School sophomore, is the daughter of Kandi Burruss’ late fiance, A.J. Jewell, who died in 2009 after a fight outside the Body Tap strip club.
Police have said that two cars were traveling on Old National Highway near Jerome Road when one started chasing the other. Shots were fired and Jewell, a passenger in the car being chased, was struck. No one else was hurt.
Jewell was rushed to Grady and underwent surgery. She remains clinging to life.
Anyone with information on the incident is urged to call Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477.
The candlelight vigil will be held at 7 p.m. Saturday at O’Reilly Auto Parts, 5549 Old National Highway in College Park.
