Youngest May Day Mass Shooting Victim Remembered by Family in Emotional Tribute

Bay Minette, Alabama – Nearly two weeks have passed since a tragic mass shooting took place at a May Day Celebration in Stockton, claiming the lives of three individuals and leaving 15 others injured.

Among the victims were Chiquita Ewing, Christian Bradley, and Micheal Anderson Jr. Anderson, the youngest of the three victims at 19 years old, was remembered by his family in a gathering held last Friday to honor his life.

Paulena Anderson, Micheal’s aunt, recalled the heartbreaking moment when she received the news of his passing. She described him as the life of the party, known for his kindness and love. “He was a popular fella,” she fondly shared, referring to him as Baby Joe.

Despite battling bone cancer for the majority of his 19 years, Anderson was known for his strength and resilience. He had to take time off from school to focus on his health, but sadly, cancer remained a part of his life until the end.

Looking ahead, Anderson was set to graduate this year and had plans to join the 2024 class at Baldwin County High School. His absence will undoubtedly be felt by his loved ones, as they remember and cherish the memories of their beloved family member and friend.

In the wake of this devastating loss, the community mourns the bright future that was cut short and the impact that Anderson had on those around him. His legacy of strength and courage lives on, leaving a lasting impression on all who knew him.

As the community continues to grapple with this tragic event, the memory of Micheal Anderson Jr. serves as a reminder of the importance of cherishing every moment and the strength that can be found in the face of adversity.
