Homicide investigators issue Canada-wide murder warrant for the arrest of Mohamud Dhiblawe

For Immediate Release: 10-Feb-2020 @ 6:12 PM
MRU #: H20R003-1 

The Edmonton Police Service’s Homicide Section has issued a Canada-wide, second-degree murder warrant for the arrest of Mohamud Dhiblawe, 29, in connection to the death of a 32-year-old male in northeast Edmonton Saturday evening.

Dhiblawe (see photo below) is alleged to be responsible for the death of Mohamed Ahmed Makaran, 32, who was shot and killed in an apartment suite on McConachie Boulevard this past weekend, Saturday, Feb. 8, 2020.

Earlier today, the Edmonton Medical Examiner’s Office completed an autopsy into Makaran’s death, confirming the 32-year-old male died from a gunshot wound with the manner of death being homicide.

Dhiblawe, of Toronto, 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 directly.

Dhiblawe has also been charged with second-degree murder in connection with a homicide in Lethbridge on Feb. 6, 2020, and is wanted by Lethbridge Police Service on a Canada-wide warrant. Please see the Lethbridge Police Service media release for more information.

At this time, investigators do not believe the two homicides are linked and both incidents do not appear to be random in nature.

Anyone with information regarding the Edmonton homicide or Dhiblawe’s whereabouts is asked to contact the EPS immediately at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.p3tips.com/250.

Background:
On Saturday, Feb. 8, 2020 at approximately 11 p.m., Northeast patrol members responded to a weapons complaint at an apartment complex on McConachie Boulevard. Upon arrival, patrol officers discovered a deceased 32-year-old-male inside a suite.
