Two people have been charged and police are combing the country for a third suspect after dozens of rounds were fired outside a lounge in North Edmonton at around 2:45am on Saturday.
Seven people were wounded by the bullets at the time, and one of them, since identified as Imbert George, 28 years old, has since died in hospital of his multiple injuries. Two of of the other victims are still in serious condition, and continue to be treated in hospital.
The incident occured just outside of the Ertale Lounge in the vicinity of 124th Street and 118th Avenue, and local authorities suspect that gang-related activities and issues may have had something to do with the shooting.
Police Chief Dale McFee commented during an audio interview the following day that "There [were] approximately 60 or 70 shots fired at a crowd."
"The video, obviously, is evidence so I can't show it, but it's horrific," continued an obviously shaken McFee.
Mohamod Mohamod, 22 years old, and Said Ibrahim, 23 years old, were both later found, arrested and charged with first-degree murder, as well as multiple counts of discharging a firearm with the intent to endanger life.
The third suspect has been positively identified as Said Osman, 27 years old. Police are conducting a "Canada-wide" search for Osman, who is wanted for the same crimes as the other two suspects.
People with any information as to the possible whereabouts of Osman should immediately contact local authorities.
