This very small shrine to Demarcus Brown is in the alley behind the 200 block of Newcomb St SE, Washington, DC.
From the DC Police report:
"On Sunday, June 14, 2009, at approximately 2:14 am, officers assigned to the 7th District responded to the 200 block of Newcomb St. SE to investigate the sound of gunfire. Upon arrival, they located an adult male suffering from multiple gunshot wounds lying in the rear of the 200 block of Newcomb St. DC Fire & EMS personnel responded to the scene, but could find no life signs. The body of the victim, identified as 25-year-old Demarcus Brown of SE Washington, DC, was later transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for the District of Columbia."
There were quite a number of police cruisers in the neighborhood the day I photographed this sad and quiet site.
