Bangor police on Thursday issued a warrant for a suspect in the December slaying of a man at a Union Street drug house.
Khalid Harris, 28, of the Bronx, New York, is charged with murder in the death of 28-year-old Syies Adams of Brooklyn, New York.
Harris should be considered dangerous and should not be approached, Bangor police said Thursday.
The suspect is a rapper who performs under the name Billz Raw, according to the police.
Last month, he released his first album, “The Legend Crew,” according to PR Newswire. Harris released his first single, “Pistol Pete,” in 2017.
“That same year, a state indictment led Billz to go on the run for almost two years, limiting the amount of content he could produce,” the press release, dated April 26, said. “During this time, Billz released two singles.”
Harris was arrested on May 1, 2019, the release about the new album said. While serving his seven-month sentence, he released the single “On the Run”, which used his wanted poster in the cover art.
Harris came to the attention of Bangor police last winter after they went to 1702 Union St. about 8:30 p.m. Dec. 10 for a report of an unconscious man. Adams was declared deceased after paramedics got there.
An autopsy determined that his death was a homicide but how he died has not been released.
The owner of the Union Street home, Brenda Shaboski, 65, has been charged in federal court with maintaining a drug-involved premises and distribution of fentanyl. She is being held without bail.
Police are asking for the public’s help in locating Harris. Anyone with information about where he is should contact the local police department, they said.
Police are not releasing additional information because the investigation is still active, they said.
If convicted of murder, Harris faces 25 years to life in prison.
Correction: An earlier version of this story listed a wrong age for Harris.
