Robert “Bobbie” Jackson was shot September 28, 2009 at 5:35 PM, while in the 100 block of 35th Street SE Washington, DC.
He died of his wounds on October 1, 2009.
His shrine is at the corner of 35th & B SE - 10 feet from one I photographed in March 2008.

His vigil was held just the night before these photographs were taken. He was shot a block away.
I spoke with two neighbors who were sad about how this affects families, particularly mothers. One, a miltary veteran, related that in the service, shoes tossed over telephone wires were in celebration of someone getting sent back home to the US, not to mark a sad occasion like a murder.
