Think Quick, Be Quick. Street memorial to Aujee Tyler | 3500 block of Stanton Road SE DC

From a DC Police report: Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a homicide that occurred on Monday, March 19, 2018, in the 3500 block of Stanton Road SE, Washington DC. At approximately 4:37 pm, members of the Seventh District responded to the listed location for the report of the sounds of gunshots. Upon arrival, officers discovered that an adult male victim sustained multiple gunshot wounds and had been transported to a local hospital for treatment. After all life-saving efforts failed, the victim, identified as Aujee Tyler, 22, of Southeast DC, was pronounced dead.

Mr. Tyler, whose nickname was "Quick," was a gifted award-winning young boxer. A further account of his complex but promising life, which ended on the streets at a young age, appears in a thoughtful article in the Washington Post.

His friends and family have set up a GoFundMe site to help support his wife and pay for a funeral.

Thank you to Jeff Heeney for his help at this and other sites documented recently.
