Memorial for Wyatt Earp Robinson

This small memorial to Wyatt Earp Robinson is on a busy corner of Minnesota Avenue NE, next to a seafood store and a MacDonalds.

From a DC Police report: On Sunday, August 21, 2011, at approximately 6:55 pm, units from the Sixth District responded to the 3800 block of Minnesota Avenue NE, Washington DC, to investigate the sounds of gunshots. Upon their arrival, they observed a male lying on the sidewalk, suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. DC Fire and EMS determined that the victim had no signs consistent with life. Subsequently, the victim, Wyatt Earp Robinson, 33, was pronounced dead by a member of the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner.
Ricardo Mitchell, 32, of Temple Hills MD, has been arrested in connection with the shooting death of Wyatt Earp Robinson.

Law enforcement sources say the officer, who is assigned to the Second District, first told investigators she had not witnessed the crime. Then, upon further questioning she changed her story.
