"I Love You Daddy" - memorial for Norman Joaquin in the 1900 block of Q Street SE

From a DC police report: Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a homicide that took place in the 1900 block of Q Street SE, Washington DC, on Wednesday, October 21, 2015, at approximately 9:32 pm. Members of the Seventh District responded to the area of Minnesota Avenue and Q Street SE, Washington DC, for a reported shooting. An adult male was located suffering from apparent gunshot wounds and showing no signs consistent with life. The decedent remained on the scene and was later transported to the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner. The decedent has been identified as Norman Joaquin, 42.

Reading the note from his child on this shrine made me cry.

A prayer is needed for peace, strength, justice, and healing.
