On the evening of October 28, Louis Beamon was found shot to death at 11th and Harvard Streets NW. The crime scene brought together grieving neighbors, friends, and family.

Beamon was 37 years old. His friends called him “Pluck.” He was a standout football player at Cardozo. This past Friday evening, before Cardozo’s home game against Coolidge, coaches and players honored Beamon at the 50-yard line.

A moment of silence was held. Cardozo coaches then presented Beamon’s family with his jersey. City Desk interviewed two of Beamon’s former coaches, a former teammate, and a cousin who was on hand to receive the framed jersey. Watch:
