Street memorial for Mr. Henry Isaacs in the 1600 block of U Street SE DC

From a DC police report: Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred on Saturday, September 29, 2018, in the 1600 block of U Street SE, Washington DC. At approximately 9:20 pm, members of the Seventh District responded to the listed location for the report of sounds of gunshots.  Upon arrival, members located an adult male victim suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services transported the victim to an area hospital. After all life-saving efforts failed, the victim, identified as Henry Isaacs, 28, of Southeast DC, was pronounced dead.

I spoke with Mr. Isaacs' godmother at the site of the memorial. She said he had no kids, and was a hard-working young man. This neighborhood has been particularly hard hit by the recent upsurge in violence in the city.  I wish her, the family, and all the community peace, and that justice is served in this young man's case.
