Homicide investigators are appealing to the public for any information that may lead to the arrest of a murder suspect.
On April 2, 2016, Michael Teddy Gibson, also known as Tyke, was in the company of the deceased, Julian Weekes, at a memorial for another murdered friend. They were seen together socializing near 366 Queen St. E. that evening.
While out front of the bar and without warning, Gibson allegedly fired numerous shots at Weekes causing him to flee. He was found deceased shortly afterwards in a nearby parking lot at Parliament St. and Richmond St. E.
“A trail of blood was traced back to The Fuse Bar and upon reviewing high quality surveillance video, investigators were able to determine Gibson’s alleged role in the murder,” said Detective Sergeant Michael Patterson.
A first-degree murder warrant for Gibson’s arrest was issued.
“He is considered armed and extremely dangerous,” added Patterson. “He has not been seen in Toronto or the Greater Toronto Area since April 5. There is a good chance he has fled the country. Anyone that is assisting or might have assisted him will be held accountable and may be arrested for accessory after the fact of murder.”
