Red balloons and more | Memorial for Kevin Jackson | 100 block of Mississippi Avenue SE DC

From a DC police report: Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred on Wednesday, October 31, 2018, in the 100 block of Mississippi Avenue SE, Washington DC. At approximately 3:19 pm, members of the Seventh District responded to the listed location for the report of a shooting. Upon arrival, members located an adult male suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services transported the victim to an area hospital. After all life-saving efforts failed, the victim was pronounced dead. The decedent has been identified as Kevin Jackson, 29, of Southeast, DC.

I met some with some residents of the neighborhood, who expressed their sadness at the situation.

There was a vigil for Mr. Jackson organized through the Wendt Center for Loss and Healing.
