Street memorial - 100 block Kennedy Street NW DC

From a DC police report: Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a homicide that occurred on Friday, September 10, 2021, in the 100 block of Kennedy Street NW, Washington DC. At approximately 9:41 pm, members of the Fourth District responded to the listed location for the report of the sounds of gunshots. Upon arrival, members located an adult male, inside of a vehicle, suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. DC Fire and Emergency Medical Services responded to the scene and transported the victim to a local hospital, where despite all life-saving efforts, the victim was pronounced dead. The decedent has been identified as 31 year-old Delonte Hazel, of Chillum, Maryland. 

I am somewhat uncertain as to who this shrine memorializes, as there is another recent street memorial in the same block from just a few months ago. I believe this shrine is for Mr. Hazel. Any information is welcome.

I wish the citizens of the area safety, justice, and peace.
