Shrine for Adam Edwin Barker, 2700 block Langston Pl SE DC

I visited this site again in June, searching for a possible memorial to another person who was recently slain in this block. Mr. Barker's memorial was still extant, with some additional items.

From a DC police report:  Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch have announced an arrest was made in a fatal shooting that occurred in the 2700 block of Langston Place SE, Washington DC, on Monday, February 29, 2016. At approximately 4:19 pm, members of the Seventh District heard the sounds of gunshots and responded to the location. Upon arrival, they located an adult male suffering from a gunshot wound. The victim was transported to a local hospital for treatment. On Tuesday, March 1, 2016, the victim succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead.  The victim was identified as Adam Edwin Barker, 21. On Friday, March 18, 2016, Paul Swann, 24, was arrested and charged with Second Degree Murder While Armed.

This memorial to Mr. Barker is in the Woodland Terrace neighborhood of DC. Peace, seriously, peace.

The shrine was still being maintained as of March 28, 2017.
