MEMPHIS, Tenn. — A Memphis bartender was shot dead over the weekend in Midtown, less than a year after his brother was killed nearby.

Memphis Police were called to an area near South Belvedere and Lockett Place, off Madison, just after midnight Saturday. They found a man fatally shot.

Police confirmed Monday that the victim in that shooting was Kevin “Shea” Grauer.

Grauer was a bartender at The Beauty Shop restaurant in Cooper-Young. Facebook was filled with tributes from the restaurant’s owner, coworkers and friends.

WREG has uncovered that Grauer’s brother, Beau Grauer, was also shot and killed just a few blocks away on Hawthorne Street, in July 2022. Detectives said Beau Grauer was found on the floor inside the Midtown home, suffering from a gunshot wound.

We reached out to the family. They said at this time, they were not ready to speak publicly, and asked for prayers for the family.
