From a DC Police report: On Monday, December 19, 2011, at approximately 5:54 pm units from the Fourth District responded to a call for a shooting in the 1000 block of Taylor Street NE, Washington DC. Upon arrival, they located the victim, an adult male, identified as Derrick Ragland, 19, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. DC Fire and EMS transported the victim to local area hospital. The victim later succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.
According to other reports, Mr. Ragland was shot a block or so away, and collapsed in this alley, in what is generally a tranquil, well-kept neighborhood.
Sad... This police tape was the only marker left of his passage.
