Memorial to Antoine Buckner

A memorial to Antoine Buckner, 32, was built in the 600 block of 46th Place NE, Washington DC.
On May 30 2010 at 10:25 pm, police were sent to investigate the sounds of gunshots in the 600 block of 46th Place NE. Officers responded to the scene and found a male victim, Antoine Buckner, lying unconscious on the concrete, suffering from a gunshot wound. He was transported to a local hospital in critical condition. On June 3, 2010 he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.

Neighbors told me that the shrine was initially "very large and beautiful." The burn marks were caused by a candle left by a loved one that tipped over and sparked a fire.
