Permanent Street Memorial, 15th & T St NE

I found this well-maintained shrine, unusual that it is formal, permanently placed and constructed of engraved stone, in a small traffic island at the intersection of 15th & T Streets NE, Washington DC. It is very near an elementary school.
It honors:
Jerome "Chip" Belle- 8/30/78 - 2/14/96 (who died on Valentine's Day, just 17 years old)
LeRon A. Perkins - 2/7/81 - 12/19/95 (14 years old)
Steven Miller - 1/2/79 - 11/30/96 (17 years old)
"Save the Children. Stop the violence."
