Man wanted Canada-wide for 2nd-degree murder in Greektown shooting

Toronto police say a second man is wanted Canada-wide for second-degree murder in a fatal shooting in Greektown earlier this year.

Police say gunshots rang out near Danforth and Carlaw avenues at around 3:30 a.m. on July 23 after a fight broke out involving multiple people and two groups of individuals, with some believed to be inside a vehicle at the time.

A man was found at the scene with gunshot wounds and was rushed to hospital, where he was later pronounced dead. The victim was identified as 29-year-old Shemar Powell-Flowers.

Shamar Powell-Flowers, 29, of Toronto, was identified as the victim of a fatal shooting in Toronto’s Greektown neighbourhood on July 23, 2023.

A 34-year-old man was arrested in connection with the shooting on Aug. 4 and charged with second-degree murder.

Investigators say a Canada-wide warrant has been issued for a second murder suspect, identified as 35-year-old Michael Bebee of Toronto.

Toronto Police Services Detective Trevor Grieve said attempts to contact Bebee have been unsuccessful, which is why the homicide unit has issued a Canada-wide warrant for his arrest.

“Mr. Bebee should be considered armed and dangerous,” Det. Grieve said on Thursday. “Mr. Bebee is known to frequent the Danforth area as well as Scarborough.”

Det. Grieve said investigators believe the victim tried to intervene following an interaction, leading to the fatal shooting.

Bebee is described as five-foot-six and 150 pounds with short brown hair, brown eyes, a chin-strap beard and a goatee, and has a tattoo of the Grimm Reaper on his right abdomen.
