Memorial to Christopher Bess / 800 block of Southern Avenue, Oxon Hill, MD

From a Prince George's County Police report: The Prince George’s County Police Department is investigating a homicide in Oxon Hill. The victim is Christopher Bess, 28, of no fixed address. Preliminarily, detectives do not believe this was a random act. On September 13, 2015, at about 6:00 pm, patrol officers were called to the 800 block of Southern Avenue for the report of a shooting. When they arrived, they found Bess outside suffering from gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead a short time later at a hospital.

I found this memorial in the parking lot of a small shopping center, which is quite unusual.

Mr. Bess's nickname was "Gunnah," according to materials placed by his loved ones.

The site is immediately adjacent to the DC/MD line.
