Tears. Tears. Street memorial for Jermille Damon Davis

This shrine to Jermile Davis is quite some distance from the site of his death. It is on the corner of 60th and Eads Streets, NE, Washington, DC.

According to the Washington Post (3/13/13, page A6), it was erected by his friends in his memory. From a DC police report: On Thursday, December 20, 2012, at approximately 8:12 pm, units from the Fourth District responded to the 4400 block of 6th Place NE, Washington, DC, for the report of a burglary in progress with a shooting victim inside. Upon arrival, they located an adult male identified as Jermile Damon Davis, 24, suffering from an apparent gunshot wound. DC Fire and EMS transported the victim to a local hospital, where he succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.

 Sadly, this is not the only street memorial that has appeared on this corner.

May he, and the community, have peace.
