Tribute mural[edit]

On Sunday November 5, 2017, a mural commemorating the three (later four) victims was unveiled on an exterior wall of a vacant building at 4725 N Nebraska Avenue in Seminole Heights.[9] David Lee, the mural's creator - and owner of the building - took the mural panels down on February 9, 2018, indicating he felt the community had begun to heal.[10]
