This street memorial honors Tommy K. Wong, 52, who was murdered about 4:00 PM Friday July 27, 2012, in his store, Capital Jewelers, 3219 Columbia Pike, Arlington VA. Video cameras show that he was murdered during a robbery. His death was discovered by his family after he did not come home that evening. Arlington Police are searching for the suspect.

The Washington Post has published interviews and other information about this sad turn of events. It can be viewed here.

Mr. Wong has been described by friends, family, and other members of the Columbia Pike business community as a warm, dedicated family man, and his loss has been devastating to all who knew him.

May his memory be for a blessing, and peace return to his family and community.
