Stephen Magruder /Two shrines | 700 block of 51st Street NE DC

From a DC Police report:  Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a homicide that occurred on Friday, September 11, 2020, in the 700 block of 51st Street NE, Washington DC. At approximately 12:43 am, members of the Sixth District responded to the listed location for the report of a shooting. Upon arrival, officers located an adult male, inside a residence, suffering from a gunshot wound. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene and determined that the victim displayed no signs consistent with life. The decedent has been identified as Stephen Magruder, 49, of Northeast DC. 

There are two shrines about 75 feet apart in this small dead-end street. As there have been other slayings in this block, I am uncertain which one honors Mr. Magruder.
