On Saturday, March 12, 2022, at approximately 2:45 a.m., Edmonton Police Service officers responded to the report of shots fired at Ertale lounge, located at 124 Street and 118 Avenue. Upon arrival, police located multiple victims outside the establishment.
EMS responded, treated, and transported two females and four males to hospital with various injuries. A fifth injured male attended a hospital on his own. One of the male victims, identified as Imbert George, 28, succumbed to his injuries. Investigators have since determined that the suspects allegedly fired approximately 70 rounds in a crowded area, and all seven victims were innocent bystanders who were randomly struck.
Two men were charged in relation to the murder; Mohamod Mohamod, 22 and Said Ibrahim, 23 are each charged with first degree murder, discharging a firearm with intent to endanger life (x6) and multiple other firearms offences. Two other suspects remain unidentified: one whose photo was included in a previous news release, as well as another male who police have yet to identify.
Still outstanding is Saed Osman, 27, who is wanted for first degree murder, discharging a firearm with intent to endanger life (x6) and multiple other firearms offences. He is also known by the alias Guled Osman, and/or the nickname “Styles.”
Osman is from Ontario, but has strong ties to Edmonton, where he may still reside. He is described as a Black male with brown eyes and black hair, which was previously known to be braided. He is six feet tall, weighs approximately 180 pounds, and has a scar on his right wrist.
The EPS has partnered with the Bolo Program to complement police efforts in locating Osman. On Oct. 18, 2022, Bolo announced its “Top 25” list of Canada’s most wanted, in which Osman was included. Osman was chosen for inclusion in the list as he is the EPS’ only homicide suspect who is currently wanted on a Canada-wide warrant for first degree murder.
The Bolo Program amplifies police requests for public assistance on most wanted cases, focusing on the most serious criminal offences. In cooperation with the Crime Stoppers Association of Edmonton and Northern Alberta, the Bolo Program offers a reward up to CAD $50,000 for any information leading to the arrest of this suspect. This reward is only available until May 1, 2023.
Osman may be armed and is considered dangerous, and should not be approached. Investigators are urging anyone with information regarding Osman’s whereabouts or any other information about the shooting to contact the EPS directly at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone.
