Kareem Chenier Ware - a thong, Horton the Elephant, flowers, and condoms. RIP.

This unusual shrine to Kareem Chenier Ware is in the 3800 block of Halley Terrace SE, Washington DC.

From news reports:
A Prince Georges County police officer on routine patrol in the 5200 block of Indian Head Highway in Oxon Hill heard gunfire and saw two vehicles fleeing the scene towards Washington.
DC Police found Kareem Chenier Ware, 33, of Waldorf, MD with a gunshot wound to his upper body in a vehicle along the 3800 block of Halley Terrace in DC. He was pronounced dead on the scene.
The other vehicle eluded police, as did the people riding with Ware.
No witnesses have come forward.

It is the first shrine I have observed with condoms and a bra, and only the second with panties.

Makes one wonder.
