Reader Jennifer Canal uploaded the picture above to our Pics & Clips gallery, with this caption:
I saw this tonight in Silverlake [sic] where Santa Monica Blvd dead ends into Sunset at the Sunset Junction. I thought it was a very touching memorial for the children lost at Sandy Hook.
Jennifer told us in an email that she'd first seen the memorial on television Friday night, just after 20 children and six adults died in a mass shooting in Newtown, CT.
But she had no idea who put it there.
We went over to check it out at the intersection of Sanborn Avenue, Santa Monica and Sunset boulevards Tuesday.
When we first drove by, just before dusk, there was someone literally standing in the road praying at the shrine.
We decided to ask around at neighboring businesses, hoping to find out more.
Employees at Jiffy Lube, Intelligentsia, Clementime and Cafe Stella could not tell us how the memorial got there.
Several said they'd seen mourners there as recently as Monday night lighting candles.
TELL US: Have you noticed the memorial to the children of Sandy Hook Elementary? Do you know who put it there?
