From HomicideWatch, quoting an as-yet unposted DC police report: On Saturday, September 28, 2013 at approximately 12:40 am, patrol officers from the Seventh District responded to the 3000 block of 30th Street SE, Washington DC, for the report of sounds of gunshots. Upon their arrival, they located an adult male suffering from apparent multiple gunshot wounds. DC Fire and EMS transported the victim, identified as Devar Battle, 24, to a local hospital where he was pronounced.
This memorial is in a neighborhood that has seen many street shrines built for victims of local violence in recent years.
A prayer for peace.
This shrine was added to. Here are some additional images.
