Lamar M. Fonville's memorial on Georgia Avenue NW

From the Washington Post: A man who had been fatally shot was found Sunday, Sunday September 30, 2012 in the 7400 block of Georgia Avenue NW, Washington DC.  DC police officers said Lamar Michael Fonville, 29, was found with a gunshot wound in the head about 3:20 am.  

There is a moving letter left at the memorial, which is in front of a modest garden apartment. It reads in part: ."..Lamar I am proud of you and miss you terribly I saw you every day and there is an empty vacuum without you all that you wanted was a piece of the American dream and this is where you ended up...

May Mr. Fonville's friends and family know peace, and may justice be served.
