Michael Moore

Age 17

Greenville, Mississippi

A jokester who loved his friends

To his best friend, Mike, he was a laid-back person who was great to be around. They would always joke to see who could get the biggest reaction out of the other. He loved food and would always ask Mike to bring him a bag of chips when they were going to hang out.

He loved to spend time with his friends, but their days spent laughing together were cut short.

Police found Michael Moore, 17, shot and killed on Nov. 18, 2018, on Alexander Street in Greenville, Mississippi.
