To the life of Raychelle Freeman | Memorial, 1100 block of Eastern Avenue NE DC

From a DC Police report: Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a homicide that occurred on Sunday, December 5, 2021, in the 1100 block of Eastern Avenue NE, Washington, DC. At approximately 2:00 pm, members of the Sixth District responded to the listed location for report of the sound of gunshots. Upon arrival, officers located an adult female victim, inside of a vehicle, suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. 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 24 year-old Raychelle Freeman, of Northeast DC. 

I spoke with Ms. Freeman's mother at this memorial site.  Very sad & touching. She thanked me for what I am doing. She was clearly in a quiet dignified grief. She said her daughter's loss has left her two children motherless. I wish them, and their whole family, every solace and healing, in peace and justice.
