Gregory Troxler's shrine "We Miss U So Damn Much"

This striking, moving memorial is an alley behind the 1800 block of 8th Street NE Washington DC. It was created by friends of Gregory Darnell Troxler, who was killed on this spot, just a few steps away from his home.

I met one of his friends at the site, and we spoke about the sad impact of violence.

 From a Washington Post blog: The man who was fatally shot in Northeast DC on Wednesday has been identified as Gregory Darnell Troxler, 21. Troxler was found lying dead in an alley off the 1100 block of 8th Street NE, Washington DC, around 4 pm October 10,2012. Police said an officer heard the gunshots about 3:50 pm. and arrived within seconds. But Troxler was already dead and the gunman was gone. The slaying was across the street from an entrance to Gallaudet University. Police Chief Lanier said that neither the shooting nor the victim was connected to Gallaudet. It occurred on the south side of Florida Avenue NE; the university is across the street. Police have not said how many times Troxler was shot and have not released any information about a suspect or motive.
