A murder suspect evaded police near Danforth and Coxwell Avenues on Sunday night.
Police received a tip that Conrad Grizzle, a 22-year-old wanted for the May 2014 shooting death of Douglas Parker, was in the area around 8 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 5.
Despite a three-hour search using a helicopter, canine unit and several officers, police did not find Grizzle, although the canine unit allegedly found a loaded firearm and some marijuana in the area.
Police have re-released photographs of Grizzle, who is described as 5’10 and 150 lbs. with brown eyes, and note that Grizzle might be wearing his hair in a ponytail.
Grizzle faces one charge of second-degree murder and two charges of attempted murder after Douglas Parker, a 20-year-old Toronto man, was shot and killed on May 24, 2014 while he and his friends were getting out of a taxi cab outside 66 Walpole Avenue, near Greenwood Avenue and Gerrard Street East.
Two of Parker’s friends were also injured in the shooting.
Police say Grizzle is armed and dangerous and should not be approached by the public.
