From a DC Police report: On Friday, January 24, 2014, at approximately 9:31 am, members from the Sixth District responded to a call for a report of a shooting in the 4500 block of Quarles Street NE, Washington DC. Upon arrival, they located an adult male suffering from an apparent gunshot wound.  DC Fire and EMS responded to the scene and determined that there were no signs consistent with life. The decedent, George Edward Hartzog, 24, remained on the scene and was transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner for the District of Columbia, pending an autopsy. 

These shoes, recently tossed over utility wires, may be a memorial for Mr. Hartzog.

May he rest in peace, and his loved ones find comfort and justice.
