Eddie R. Blocker, 18, was found fatally shot on October 2, 2009. The shrine is next to 1512 18th St SE, Washington, DC.
Gunshots were heard near 18th & P Sts SE. Responding police officers found Mr. Blocker shot several times in the 1400 block of 18th St SE. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
Young Mr. Blocker had grown up in this neighborhood. I spoke with a dignified older gentleman who was a good friend of Eddie’s mother. He told me that his grandson was a close friend of Eddie’s growing up. I left him thoughtfully viewing the shrine.
