Homicide #53-Shane Kelter

He lived the fast life and it eventually caught up to him. Shane Kelter, 32 who actually lives in Vancouver but I’m assuming came to Toronto on business was killed in the downtown district this past Sunday as he hopped out of a limo and arrived at a condo on Bay St. Autopsy results show he died of multiple gun shot wounds to the chest. Witnesses could only give vague description of the shooter: a black male in dark clothing. Police have received no cooperation from the people who were out with Kelter.

Kelter was known to Vancouver police and had faced "the full spectrum" of charges. Kelter was one of six Canadians from Vancouver and Toronto indicted in the U.S. by the Organized Crime Drug Enforcement Task Force. Kelter was accused of overseeing drug smuggling between the U.S. and Canada. He and 17 others are alleged to have moved ecstasy, cocaine and methamphetamine along the West Coast. A warrant was issued for his arrest in California, but extradition talks were still ongoing between American and Canadian authorities, said a spokesperson from the U.S. Attorney's Office.
