Shrine to unknown victim(s) | Good Hope Road SE DC

Street shrine to unknown person or persons, Good Hope Road SE, Washington DC.

A recent double homicide took place in an apartment complex close by, and this memorial may be for the two victims, Wanda and Ebony Wright, but the presence of a license plate makes me think it may perhaps be otherwise. 

In any case, may peace and justice be served.

From a DC Police report: Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a homicide that occurred on Monday, April 12, 2021 in the 2300 block of Good Hope Court SE, Washington, DC. At approximately 7:33 pm, members of DC Fire and EMS responded to the listed location for the report of a fire. Moments later members of the Seventh District were dispatched to the listed location for reports of a shooting. On arrival, members located one female suffering from a gunshot wound in the parking lot. DC Fire and EMS transported the victim to a local hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries. Two additional adult female victims were located suffering from gunshot wounds. One of the victims displayed no signs consistent with life. The other victim was transported to a local hospital, and despite all lifesaving efforts, succumbed to her injuries. The decedents have been identified as 48 year-old Wanda Wright and 32-year old Ebony Wright, both of Southeast DC.
