Update: AntiFA used Chemical Weapons on State Police in Harrisburg

Harrisburg, PA – It has been a wild 2 weeks in June, with shootings, robberies, and large crowd fights happening repeatedly all over the city. No neighborhood is safe when large scale fighting can break out at any moment. 

As the police have recently been busy disbanding groups of wannabe militant activist, their presence is not visible in the neighborhoods where, at this point, anything goes. 

Summer is on full blast and the videos are in:

Update: Robbery for “Payback” – Exclusive Interview with the Female Driver 

By: Harrisburg100

Harrisburg, PA – Sidney Michaels and Dylan Beard allegedly robbed, shot and killed Kodi Flanagan at the intersection of N. 3rd and Muench Streets, in broad daylight on Tuesday April 25, 2017.

Both men are being held without bail in the Dauphin County Prison.

Kodi Flanagan

Police said the victim, Kodi Flanagan, 22 of Middletown PA, was pulled out of a car with a female acquaintance and a child inside, then beat down before he was shot. This occurred just after 6:30pm in a residential neighborhood in Uptown Harrisburg, Pennsylvania.

The murder occurred at a busy intersection where many neighbors walk and wait for the bus. There is also a bar on one corner. It happened around 6:30pm, when most neighbors are enjoying a stroll through the community, or relaxing on their front porch.

The shooter, Sidney Nathan Michaels, 22, of Middletown PA, has been arrested for the April 25 murder of Kodi Flanagan.

Michaels was arrested Friday afternoon on charges of homicide, robbery, conspiracy and firearms violations. He was located by deputy U.S. Marshals in Derry Township, Dauphin County.

Chief of Police, Thomas Carter – City of Harrisburg, PA

Until now, the police and the city have not released much information about the horrific scene that unfolded in the residential neighborhood this week in broad daylight.

All parties involved in this robbery/murder do not live in the City of Harrisburg, including the victim and both suspects.

Flanagan, 22, of Middletown, was shot at around 6:30 p.m. near N. 3rd & Muench Streets in the city, police said.


According to court records, Sidney Michaels and Dylan Beard, 25, of Highspire, attempted to rob Flanagan when the shooting occurred.

The police have text message evidence of Beard stating he was “planning to commit a robbery with a male friend who had a ‘toaster.’ [Gun]”


As per an eye-witness account, Michaels “used a handgun to shoot and kill the victim,” according to records.

Beard is being held without bail after turning himself in and being arraigned Thursday night in Dauphin County Night Court on charges of homicide, robbery and conspiracy.

This homicide is not believed to be a racially motivated hate crime, but there is a lot more to this story. Another fact of this matter is that these individuals and have a prior history of sketchy drug deals together.

There is also potentially another co-conspirator involved in this robbery set-up.

Look for the follow up to this report.
