A 25-year-old man has been charged with second-degree murder in a gang-related shooting that happened in February. 

As previously reported, on February 9, 2022, at approximately 3:40 a.m., members of the Winnipeg Police Service (WPS) responded to the 200 block of Garry Street, where two people were injured during a shooting.

One of the males that were shot was attended to by the WPS and brought to the hospital. The other injured male was dropped off at the hospital with critical gunshot wounds and succumbed to his injuries. 

The deceased has been identified as Abdulwasi Ahmed, a 30-year-old male of Winnipeg.
On March 14, 2022, members of the Homicide Unit, with the assistance of the Tactical Support Team, arrested a male at a residence in the first 100 block of Hargrave Street for the murder of Ahmed.
Investigators believe both the accused and the deceased were associated with criminal organizations in the city. It is unknown if they knew each other at the time of the killing; however, the shooting is believed to be gang motivated.
Gunni Abdi Hassen, a 25-year-old male of Winnipeg, has been charged with Second Degree Murder and detained in custody.
