CAPE TOWN - Today 12-year-old Ashwin Jones, who was gunned down in the Cape Town community last month, was laid to rest.
He was killed in a suspected gang initiation shooting. Jones would’ve celebrated his thirteenth birthday today.
Instead of traditional birthday celebrations which include cake and balloons, fellow classmates and community members gathered at a local church to pay tribute to him.
He was remembered as a cheerful, friendly and helpful.
