15 year old Ashley Jewel was a vibrant beautiful Stephenson High School sophomore but now she remains in critical condition after becoming the innocent victim of an apparent road rage incident March 5th.
Jewell, the daughter of thelate A.J. Jewell, a “Real Housewives of Atlanta” personality who was the onetime fiance of Kandi Burruss, was shot in the head during the incident, which occurred in south Fulton County. Multiple shots were fired at the car Jewell was riding in. None of the other passengers or the driver was struck and authorities are still searching for a suspect.
About 100 people attended a candlelight vigil and call to action Saturday night to lend support to the family of the injured teen.
Supporters met outside of O’Reilly’s Auto Parts in College Park and vowed to distribute fliers saying “Justice for Asheley Jewell” and “Who shot Asheley?”
“It was a great turnout and everybody was very supportive,” said Ebony Phillips, a cousin of Jewell who helped organize the vigil. “We really want Asheley’s face to be known all over metro Atlanta.”
Anyone with information about the shooting is encouraged to call Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577-8477.
Family and friends of the teen are pleading that someone comes forward with information on the incident and have also set up a Facebook page which you can visit HERE to offer support or tips.
Please keep the family in your prayers.
