He alway brought fun and excitement everywhere that he was. He was always known for saying something crazy, and doing crazy things, but he never wanted to hurt anyone. Yeah, everyone has two sides, but he was a real man that was about his son and cared about his mother a lot. He will be missed, and trust me fam, your legacy will live on. You will never be forgotten. Now you're at the go-go where the music never turns off, and you can beat your feet all day without pain or anything. Rest in Peace cuzzo.</p></blockquote> Laura AmicoTue, 29 May 2012 08:41:01 -0400http://homicidewatch.org/2012/05/29/comment-of-theday-now-youre-at-the-go-go-where-the-music-never-turns-off/Levern ButlerBarry Farm Shooting Victim ID'ed as Levern Butlerhttp://homicidewatch.org/2012/05/22/barry-farm-shooting-victim-ided-as-levern-butler/<p>A man killed in a shooting in Barry Farm early Tuesday morning has been identified as 27-year-old <a href="http://homicidewatch.org/victims/levern-butler/" >Levern Butler</a>.</p> <p>A press release from MPD is below.<br /> <span id="more-9270"></span></p> <blockquote><p>May 22, 2012</p> <p>Homicide: 1300 Block of Stevens Road, SE</p> <p>(Washington, DC)-Detectives from the Metropolitan Police Department’s Homicide Branch are investigating a fatal shooting which occurred in the 1300 block of Stevens Road, SE.</p> <p>On Tuesday, May 22, 2012, at approximately 1:18 am, units from the Seventh District responded to the rear of 1300 block of Stevens Road, SE for the report of a shooting.
