Hassan Isse Ismail

The Edmonton Police Service is seeking the support of the city’s Somali community to locate Hassan Isse Ismail, who is wanted on Canada-wide warrants for second-degree murder.

Police believe the 29-year-old man is responsible for the murder of 24-year-old Aden Ahmed, who was stabbed to death Nov. 19, 2012, at a downtown residence near 113 Avenue and 94 Street.

“The EPS has worked hard to establish a healthy relationship with this community, and we’re hopeful that partnership will help us in our search for this individual,” said Homcide Section Staff Sgt. Bill Clark.

Ismail is thought to have ties to the Greater Toronto Area. He is described as a black male, 6’3” tall and more than 200 pounds.

The death of a young male that occurred last night, Monday, Nov. 19, 2012, has now been deemed a homicide.

Autopsy results released earlier this afternoon by the Medical Examiner’s Office confirmed that Aden Ahmed, 24, succumbed to stab wounds in hospital. The victim allegedly sustained the stab wounds during an altercation involving several males at a downtown residence near 113 Avenue and 94 Street, at approximately 8:35 p.m., Nov. 19, 2012.
