Memorial for TaQuan Pinkney | 2800 block of Stanton Road SE DC

From a DC police report: Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred on Sunday, September 9, 2018, in the 2800 block of Stanton Road SE, Washington DC. At approximately 1:13 pm, members of the Seventh District responded to the listed location for the report of a shooting. Upon arrival, officers located an adult male suffering from a gunshot wound. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services transported the victim to a local hospital. After all life-saving efforts failed, the victim was pronounced dead. The decedent has been identified as TaQuan Pinkney, 18, of Southeast DC.

There is considerably more on this case in a Washington Post article. Mr. Pinkney was shot down in his prime, and seemed headed for a vibrant successful life. May he rest in peace.
