From DC Police reports: On Saturday July 2, 2011, at approximately 1:30 am, units from the Sixth District responded to shooting in the 600 block of 46th Place SE, Washington DC. Officers located an adult male victim, identified as Jeffrey Yarnell Covington, 19, of Upper Marlboro, MD, suffering from a gunshot wound. DC Fire and EMS transported the victim to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injury and was pronounced dead.
I am not 100% sure this group of plush animals is intended as Mr. Covington's shrine, but the location is correct, and it looks & feels like a small memorial.
In any case, peace to his friends and family.

There was another shrine in this cul-de-sac recently, to Antoine Buckner.
