Damn It Feels Good To Be A Gangsta
Nearly 30 people joined together Wednesday morning, for a ceremony and revealing of a gravestone marker for the previously unmarked grave of Alfred James Brady. In 1937 Brady was killed by FBI agents during a shootout on Central Street in Bangor. Brady, considered Public Enemy #1 at the time, was shot and killed, along with Clarence Lee Shaffer as they were returning to Dakin's Sporting Goods to purchase a submachine gun. For nearly 70 years the burial place has remained unmarked and quietly hidden along the edge of Mount Hope Cemetery.
