Mohamed Ibrahim Sail, charged in cellphone killing, turns himself in to police
Jeremy Cook, 18, was killed while trying to recover a cellphone
Police in London, Ont., say a man wanted in connection with the death of a teenager who was fatally shot while trying to recover a cellphone has turned himself in.
Mohamed Ibrahim Sail, a 24-year-old from Calgary, is facing a second-degree murder charge in connection with the death of 18-year-old Jeremy Cook. Police said on Twitter that Sail turned himself in shortly before 8 p.m. ET Friday.
Sail is currently in detention at the London police headquarters and is being interviewed by detectives from the Major Crimes Unit. After being interviewed, he is expected to appear before a justice of the peace in bail court via video link this afternoon. He'll stay in custody until a later court date.
Another Calgary man, 23-year-old Muhab Sultan, was also wanted for murder in connection to the incident but was found dead in the Rideau River in Ottawa on June 27 after police say he ran away from officers and went in the water.
A third person had also been interviewed by police. Police said he walked away prior to the criminal conduct and does not face any charges.
Cook lost the iPhone while visiting London, and later used an app to track down the device. Police have said he was killed on June 14 after tracking the phone to a car with three men inside. Investigators said Cook was shot multiple times when he grabbed the car as it began to drive away.
