Antonio Moten "Sweetus" - RIP 2006

This older shrine to Anthonio Moten "Sweetus" is sequestered at the rear of 5363 Clay Terrace NE, Washington DC.

According to police and news records, Mr. Moten was killed on June 11, 2006 at 7:43 PM. A woman was also shot in this incident, but survived her wounds.

I was led to this shrine on October 30, 2009 by some youth from the Clay Terrace area who told me about it. It has been maintained for three years at the back of this public housing project by those who cared for him.

There have been numerous murders in the Clay Terrace complex over the years.
