Several local residents have asked the Richmond Standard about a growing and visible memorial near the tracks in the 700 block of Market Avenue in North Richmond.

We contacted officials from the Contra Costa County Office of the Sheriff and coroner’s office, who told us that 16-year-old Jesus Olivares of Richmond was fatally struck by a train Friday night.

No further details about the incident were immediately available.
