This is in my neighborhood. I went past there today. There is R.I.P. graffiti all over that intersection. But FYI there is also a huge memorial on the sidewalk for him -- on 94th Ave a block and a half east of Bancroft.

I went by here again today with my camera. There were lots of kids around the shrine. This guy is missed. Grafitti is everywhere for blocks.

90th and Bancroft, the corner where Allan Mejia was killed

Allan,
I sit back and remember the good times we all had. You were the best roommate I ever had and a good friend. You had a warm heart and were always there to give me the best advice. You came to this country to seek a better life and get away from the pain and turmoil that permeated Honduras. Sadly enough, Oakland isn't much different. However, one can't blame just the shooter. Those who were there to egg you on to party, "go dumb", and get "hyphy", "thizz" this and blah blah blah are also responsible. Unfortunately not everyone will learn from your death. They will keep on living this fast life not keeping in mind their lives and their futures.
We all make mistakes here and there. But the important part if learning from those mistakes and growing up.
I knew you Allan, I knew you well. I also loved you and wanted what was best for you.
You may be gone but you will stay forever in our hearts. Thanks to God you have family and friends who still love you and are doing what they can to seek justice. God bless Tomas Melero's familia who are helping us out as well. Court dates are coming up and justice is being made.
R.I.P. Allan Mejia, my friend, my roommate, my brother, my heart.
