Robert Stewart-Pixley's street memorial | 2500 block of Iverson Street, Temple Hills MD

From a PG Police report: Detectives with our Homicide Unit are investigating a fatal shooting in Temple Hills Tuesday night. The victim is 34-year-old Robert Stewart-Pixley of Temple Hills. On September 13, 2022, at approximately 8:40 pm, patrol officers were called to the 2500 block of Iverson Street, Temple Hills, Maryland, for a shooting. Once on scene, they discovered Stewart-Pixley unresponsive outside a residence suffering from gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead on the scene. Detectives are working to identify a suspect(s) and a motive.

I spoke with the neighbor who found the body of the deceased on her sidewalk. She had also recently spoken to the distraught mother of the slain young man, who lived nearby. There was still quite a bit of blood on the sidewalk where Mr. Stewart-Pixley was shot. She was erecting signs, mostly with sayings from the Bible. She said this was a war of the spirit, not of material things, and that people were doing the work of their oppressors by killing one another, essentially doing the devil’s work. She feels strongly that people should exercise self-control and spiritual calmness.

I wish for a healing of all hearts, and an increase in the peace.
