The Cold Cases of York Region: Everton Brown and Lloyd Mitchell

Two black males

FILE No.: 1996-55125

Two gunmen opened fire in a crowded basement at a Markham after-hours club on May 18, 1996, killing Everton Brown and Lloyd Mitchell. 

Two others were struck by bullets, but survived their injuries. 

The after-hours club, known as Club Fawcett, was housed in a residential building at 5711 Fourteenth Avenue. Though more than 200 people attended the large party, no one was willing to provide investigators with information to identify the people who murdered Everton, 31, and Lloyd, 23, and wounded two others.
