Upon their arrival, they located the victim, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. Personnel from the DC Fire and EMS responded to the scene and transported the victim identified as Francisco Orlando Rivas, 19, to an area hospital where he was pronounced dead.
Slain while on the job in a generally fairly quiet neighborhood, Mr. Rivas was a hardworking pizza delivery driver. He leaves behind a grieving family and a two-year-old child.
This shrine was erected at a vigil attended by friends and family. There were a large number of candles lit in his memory.
May his loved ones know peace, and justice.
