As news spread of the stabbing death of a 29-year-old Norwalk man, family and friends gathered outside of his Fairfield Avenue home.

Known as a talented basketball player, Michael Moody, who played at Brien McMahon High School in Norwalk, where he was known for his "smooth," jump shot, was stabbed around 1 a.m., Thursday, Aug. 8, Norwalk Police said.

Norwalk police, who have not released many details, said on Thursday they had a person of interest in the death of the longtime resident neighbors called quiet, but friendly.

Moody’s death is the first homicide in Norwalk since Johnny Lezeau, 26, was shot and killed on July 20, 2017.
