A plush puppy and libation street memorial for Kevin Cortez Johnson | 1200 block of Raum Street NE

From a DC police report: Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a homicide that occurred on Friday, June 26, 2015, at approximately 11:45 pm. While investigating the sounds of gunshots, Fifth District members located an adult male with apparent gunshot wounds in the 1200 block of Raum Street NE, Washington DC. He was transported to a local hospital, but succumbed to his injuries. The decedent has been identified as Kevin Cortez Johnson, 23.

This memorial is in the Trinidad/Ivy City neighborhood of DC, which is again experiencing a sad storm of homicides.

I pray that the community again experiences peace, within and without.
