Shrines to Emmanuel Durant

Emmanuel Durant, 19, was found fatally shot New Year's Eve, December 31, 2009 in the alley behind the 200 block of Hawaii Avenue NE, Washington DC. He lived at 208 Webster Street NE, where there is a second memorial in front of the home, erected by his grieving family.

Mr Durant, a recent graduate of Roosevelt High School, was shot by assailants that he tried to fight off while protecting his family. The attackers had robbed his older brother and invaded the family's home in the normally quiet neighborhood.
More than fifty people celebrated his life at a vigil according to the Washington Post.
