In a news release, police said Mohamud Dhiblawe of Toronto is wanted in connection to the homicide of Mohamed Ahmed Makaran.

Police say Makaran was shot in his apartment suite. Police were called to the man’s northeast Edmonton home on Saturday night.

“[Dhiblawe] is believed to be armed and dangerous, and as such, investigators are urging the public to not engage with him should they see Dhiblawe, but rather to contact EPS (the Edmonton Police Service) directly.”
