Street memorial for John Jones | 1100 block of Raum Street NE DC

From a DC Police report: Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a homicide that occurred on Saturday, April 16, 2022, in the 1100 block of Raum Street NE, Washington DC. At approximately 4:08 am, members of the Fifth District responded to the listed location for the report of a shooting. Upon arrival, the members located an adult male victim inside of a vehicle, unconscious and not breathing, suffering from apparent gunshot wounds. DC Fire and EMS responded to the scene and found that the victim displayed no signs consistent with life. The decedent has been identified as 26 year-old John Jones, of Temple Hills, MD. 

I have learned that this memorial is to two people in the neighborhood, one of whom was slain, the other who passed of natural causes.

This impressive street shrine is in the Ivy City/Trinidad neighborhood. May friends, family, the community, and the deceased know peace.
