This shrine to Dezmine (or Dezmoine) Perkins, 16 years of age, is outside 535 Edgewood Street NE, Washington DC.
About 11:00 PM on May 1st, 2010, young Mr. Perkins was found suffering from multiple gunshot wounds, and was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. According to the Washington Post, his neighbors said that he was a respectful young man who liked playing basketball and football. His aunt shared that he was a good kid, and that this should not have happened.
Peace to his soul and to the hearts of his friends and family.
And may justice reign.
He was killed in the same block as Kenyetta Nicholson-Stanley, also a teenager, who was slain during October 2009. Her shrine is still standing, and kept in good shape.
