Michael Brittingham's street memorial | 600 block of 46th Place SE DC

From a DC Police report: Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred on Thursday, August 6, 2020, in the 600 block of 46th Place SE, Washington DC. At approximately 5:47 pm, members of the Sixth District responded to the listed location for the report of the sounds of gunshots. Upon arrival, officers located an adult male suffering multiple gunshot wounds. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene and found no signs consistent with life. A second adult male was located at the scene, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was transported to an area hospital for treatment of life-threatening injuries. Additionally, a juvenile male walked into a local hospital suffering from a gunshot wound. The victim was treated for non-life-threatening injuries. The decedent has been identified as Michael Brittingham, 26, of Northeast DC. 

I spoke briefly to a person at this site, and he expressed a thoughtful desire for a wiser more peaceful situation for his community.
