MOBILE, Ala. (WKRG) — Family and friends of the 13-year-old who was allegedly killed by his mother held a vigil Wednesday, Oct. 5. The vigil was held in the same neighborhood where Ja’mil Dewayne Lewis Autry was shot.
His siblings Tiffany Epps and William Lewis recalled their little brother’s big heart and his passion for WWE.
“Fun, Energetic, loving. He loved his big sister,” said Tiffany Epps. “He said I was the greatest big sister in the world. I’m going to miss him.”
This vigil all takes place just days after he was killed.
Mobile Police said his mother, Glenda Lewis shot her son in the back Monday, Oct. 3 on Jones Lane. Ja’mil died in the hospital.
