Tavon Maurice Patterson: Roses, ribbons, the cross, and a bear in memory; 15th Place SE Washington DC

From a DC police report: Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a homicide which occurred in the 3200 block of 15th Place SE, Washington DC, on Thursday, October 15, 2015, at approximately 7:38 pm.              

Members of the Seventh District responded for a shooting call.  While investigating in the area, they located an adult male suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.  DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services transported the victim to an area hospital, where the victim, identified as Tavon Maurice Patterson, 23, later succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.



I was alerted to the presence of this shrine to the memory of Mr. Patterson, by my friend and resident of the neighborhood, Craig Byynes. Thank you Craig.

And blessings on the community and the circle of Mr. Patterson's friends and family.
