Brown wrote on his Facebook page:

RIP Mikey. Another Harrigan gone too soon. This time, my brother Mikey was gunned down in the streets of Bridgeport. If you knew Mikey, you know that he couldn’t harm a fly. Good heart, good soul. We will get justice for you and our family.

The Harrigan and Brown family are mourning the loss of Mikey (Michael) Harrigan at this time. Mikey was a victim of a random act of gun violence early Sunday Morning. The family asks at this time to please support our efforts to give Mikey a proper burial that would honor his life. No amount is too little. We thank you for your help! God Bless!

  1. I wonder if there’s a back story as to why this individual was shot. In any case, after 3 days of being announced with no comments, let me say, condolences to the family. No matter why it happened it’s still a families loss.
