From the Washington Post: Metro section page B2 5/6/08
"Brandon Gaines, 25. His body was found at 7:30 PM April 22, 2008 near his home in the 2000 block of Maryland Ave [NE]. He had been shot multiple times. Police said they were looking into whether his shooting is tied to an investigation into a ring in the Carver Terrace area. Gaines had previous brushes with the police, dating to his teens, including a drug conviction."
There are numerous shrines all within a block or two of this recent killing. Several people observed me making these photographs, including two middle-aged men standing no more than 15 feet away - but nobody ventured to ask questions or speak to me.
Tough neighborhood, to say the least.
