Dozens march against gun violence in memory of Jazzmine Brayboy

A church pastor in Broward County lead the Peace Up, Guns Down march on Thursday in memory of a slain woman.

POMPANO BEACH, Fla. – Rev. Branden A. Jones led dozens to march against gun violence in memory of a slain 22-year-old woman on Thursday in Pompano Beach.

The march started at the Mount Calvary Baptist Church, at 800 NW 8th Ave., and ended with a prayer next to the canal where deputies found Jazzmine Brayboy dead in a Chevrolet Camaro.

Detectives believe Brayboy crashed after her boyfriend shot her. A 5-month-old baby named Aziyah was in the car. A witness rescued the baby after he survived the shooting and the crash.

Deputies arrested Brayboy’s 17-year-old boyfriend a few days after the Feb. 16 tragedy and he is facing a premeditated murder charge in Broward County.
