Street shrine for Alvin Allen Jr. | 3500 block of Stanton Road SE DC

From a DC police report: On Sunday, May 5, 2013, at approximately 2:50 am, officers from the Seventh District responded to the 3400 block of Stanton Road SE, Washington DC, for the report of a shooting. Upon arrival, they located two adult males and one juvenile male suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. DC Fire and EMS transported them to local hospitals where the first victim, identified as Alvin Allen Jr., 21, succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead, and the second and third victims were treated for their injuries.    

This memorial is in the 3500 block of Stanton Road, SE.

There is more and ongoing information about Mr. Allen at HomicideWatch.

Interestingly, there was quite a police presence on this block when I documented this memorial. It consisted of Police Community Resource vans rather than squad cars.

RIP and healing for the family and community.
