A Winnipeg man is facing charges following the death of a 29-year-old.

On the morning of October 12, a pedestrian walking their dog along the Red River reported to police what they thought was a dead body. When officers arrived in the area of Churchill Drive and Hay Street at 8 a.m., they confirmed it was a deceased man and emergency crews recovered his body. The victim was a 29-year-old named Mohamed Mohiadin Ahmed.

A 21-year-old Winnipeg man is being changed with Second-Degree Murder. He was arrested on Tuesday. Police found him in a William Whyte home. He also had three additional warrants at the time of the arrest. 

In February, the first suspect, a 28-year-old man, was arrested and is facing a Second-Degree Murder change.


An earlier statement from the WPS said the first suspect was arrested in January. This has since been corrected.
