I found this shrine in the 5300 block of Dix Street NE, Washington, DC.
From DC police reports: On Saturday, October 2, 2010 at approximately 12:33 am, officers from the Sixth District heard the sounds of gunshots and responded to the 5300 block of Dix Street NE, to investigate. Upon arriving, they discovered Angelo Jones, 31, of NE, suffering from gunshot wounds. DC Fire and EMS transported the victim to an area hospital where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.
This memorial is in the Clay Terrace area. There was another killing less than a block from here about two weeks earlier- I found no memorial on that site.
This is one of the deadliest areas in the city, and many here mourn their losses.
