Shrine to Oscar Powell

This double shrine to Oscar Powell is in the 2100 block of 2nd St NW, Washington DC. His residence was given in the newspaper as 5300 N. Capital St DC. He was killed 7/22/08, found dead on the street.

I met three young girls at the site, and we spoke for a few minutes. They thought he must be from around the area, as his shrine prominently displayed his gang colors, including a red "Bloods" gang kerchief. They said many local people belong to the Bloods.

The shrine appears to have been erected by "Michelle," She must have loved Oscar very much.
