Memorial for Mr. Trayvon Wood | 4400 block of Douglas Street NE DC

From a DC Police report: Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred on Saturday, October 27, 2018, in the 4400 block of Douglas Street NE, Washington DC. At approximately 5:17 pm, members of the Sixth District responded to the listed location for the sound of multiple gunshots. Upon arrival, members located an adult male suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services were summoned to the scene and transported the victim to a local hospital. After all lifesaving efforts failed, the victim was pronounced dead. A second victim sought treatment at an area hospital for a non-life threatening gunshot wound. The decedent has been identified as 19 year-old Trayvon Wood, of Southeast DC.

I encountered this shrine while investigating a possible shrine for Corey Wells, who was slain in this block on August 18, 2019.

May every heart in this community know safety and peace.
