Metro shrine to Olijawon Griffin, in Woodley Park NW

This memorial has been erected in the memory of Olijawon Griffin, 18, of Olney, Maryland. Mr Griffin was stabbed to death inside the Woodley Park Metro station, Washington,DC, at approximately 1:15 am Saturday November 17, 2012. He had apparently been robbed earlier in the evening in the nearby Adams Morgan neighborhood, and was fatally attacked in the Metro station. Another young man was also stabbed, but has survived. Nine suspects have been arrested in the case.

According to a photograph accompanying a Washington Post article, part of the shrine was erected by Eve Smith of Kensington, Maryland.

This is a sad ending for a life, and in a usually quiet upscale neighborhood.
