A celebration of the life of a 1-year-old boy killed in a shooting last week in Oakland is scheduled for Friday.
Drew Jackson was killed the morning of Aug. 7 after shots rang out in the 400 block of Ghormley Avenue, striking Drew and his father Andrew Thomas.
Drew was rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead. Thomas, 20, was pronounced dead at the scene.
The father and son, who lived in Fresno, were staying at a relative's home for a birthday party and extended their stay to mourn the death of Thomas' 18-year-old cousin Alquino Rivera, who was fatally shot four days earlier.
The reward in the unsolved case was raised earlier this week to $30,000 dollars.
A celebration of Drew's life is scheduled for Friday at 11 a.m. at WFG Fuller Funerals, located at 4647 International Blvd. in Oakland.
Drew's mother has requested that no one attending wear black.
An "In Trust for" burial of Drew and scholarship fund for Drew's 3-year-old sister LeShawn has been set up to help the family with costs.
Anyone wishing to help can wire money to Bank of America account No. 325018238390, routing No. 121000358.
