Candles in memory of Don Lavae Willams Jr. in the 2900 Block of Nelson Place SE, Washington DC

This shrine remnant to Don Lavae Williams, Jr. is behind a small commercial area in Southeast DC. Some of his friends informed me that there a larger shrine was evident until recently. It included his photograph and other material placed in memory by friends and family.

From a DC police report: Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred in the 2900 Block of Nelson Place SE, Washington DC, on Sunday, May 8, 2016. At approximately 1:47 am, members of the Sixth District responded to a call for the sounds of gunshots. Upon arrival on the scene, members located an adult male suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. The victim was transported to an area hospital where all lifesaving efforts failed and the victim was pronounced dead.  The decedent has been identified as Don Lavae Williams, Jr., 34.
