A suspect wanted on a Canada-wide warrant in the fatal stabbing of an Edmonton man has turned himself into police.
Hassan Isse Ismail, 30, is charged with second-degree murder in the death of Aden Ahmed on Nov. 19.
"Last night at about 4 p.m., I received a call from a lawyer advising that his client wanted to turn himself in and Hassan Ismail turned himself in just after 5 p.m. last night at the front counter of police headquarters," said Staff Sgt. Bill Clark from the Homicide Section.
Ismail is in custody and is not cooperating with investigators, Clark said.
Police believe that Ismail was in Brooks, Alta. for a couple weeks after Ahmed's death but later returned to Edmonton.
Ahmed, 24, was found suffering from stab wounds when police were called to a home near 113th Avenue and 94th Street.
Ahmed was rushed to hospital but died of his injuries.
