Yellow crime tape at the site of Kevin Dennis Prater's demise. 1000 block of Savannah Street SE DC

From a DC Police report: Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a homicide that occurred in the 1000 block of Savannah Street SE, Washington DC, on Monday, December 28, 2015. At approximately 8:20 pm, members of the Seventh District responded to the report of the sounds of gunshots.  Upon arrival, they located an adult male suffering from apparent gunshot wounds.  DCFEMS members arrived on the scene and found no signs of life. The decedent has been identified as Kevin Dennis Prater, 31, of no fixed address.

I spoke at length to an interesting concerned person when documenting this site. The author/activist J.A. Lesesne Bnjhmm grew up in the home adjacent to where the slaying occurred. His aged mother still lives in the house, a community of largely resident-owned single-family residences. Needless to say, this sad and terrible violent act has an impact that reverberates.

I got to the site the day after the homicide.

Blessings and peace to all. Peace.
