Howard Ricardo Sampler's memorial / big blue bird...

This large shrine was erected in a neighborhood where there have been several homicides in the past few weeks.

From a DC Police report: On Tuesday, January 3, 2012, at approximately 5:55 pm units from the Sixth District responded to a call for a shooting in the 1500 block of 45th Street NE, Washington DC. Upon arrival, they located the victim, an adult male, identified as Howard Ricardo Sampler, 21, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. DC Fire and EMS responded to the scene and transported the victim to local area hospital, where he later succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.

RIP to Mr. Sampler, and peace to the community.
