Street shrine for Erik Butler | 1100 block of Barnaby Terrace SE DC

From a DC Police report: Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a fatal shooting that occurred on Friday, August 28, 2020, in the 1100 block of Barnaby Terrace SE, Washington DC. At approximately 8:47 am, 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 multiple gunshot wounds. After all life-saving efforts failed, the victim was pronounced dead. The decedent has been identified as Erik Butler, 28, of Southeast DC. 

I spoke with two young men at this site. They expressed care for their neighbor, and hope the ongoing wave of violence would end.
