Two shrines for James Sherrod | Kenilworth Terrace NE

From a DC police report: On Saturday, April 28, 2012 at approximately 1:40 pm, units from the Sixth District responded to the 700 block of Kenilworth Terrace NE, Washington DC,  for the report of the sounds of gunshots. Upon their arrival, they located an adult male suffering from gunshot wounds. DC Fire and EMS transported the victim, identified as James Ray Sherrod, 22, to a local hospital where he subsequently succumbed to his wounds and was pronounced dead. 

On Monday, April 30, 2012, at approximately 2:45 pm, members of the Capital Area Regional Fugitive Task Force arrested Dietrich Baker, 23, charging him with Murder Two while Armed in the fatal shooting.

There are two shrines erected in his memory about half a block apart.

I spoke with both neighbors and the sister of Mr. Sherrod. The situation is very sad, and I wish them peace.
