DC police press officers said an assault was reported at 14th and Park Streets NW at about 1:55 pm Saturday, January 14, 2012. The victim, Juan Antonio Paredes, 45, was beaten with a steel pole and Jeffrey Mills was arrested in the incident. DC Councilman Jim Graham said that he understood that the incident was “a serious fight between two persons vending.”

All that remained of the incident was this police tape. Apparently there had been a large bloodstain on the sidewalk near the bike racks where the slaying occurred, but there was no sign of it, nor of any memorial other than the police crime scene tape.
