Edmonton police say a man with ties to Hay River and Yellowknife is wanted for murder in Edmonton.
According to an Edmonton police news release, their Homicide Section is looking for Amin Yussuf, 29, who remains wanted on Canada-wide warrants in connection to the shooting death of 26-year-old Abubeker Gemechu Abduraman on March 24, of last year.
Police say on that date they found a man deceased inside a nightclub.
Two other individuals were also shot and sustained non-life-threatening wounds in the shooting, police stated.
Yussuf is wanted for first-degree murder, attempted murder and unauthorized possession of a firearm.
Police say he is also known by the following aliases: Abdirizak Yussuf, Craig Yussuf, Mohemed Yussuf, Mohemed Mohamed and Mohammed Farrah.
They also say Yussuf has connections to Yellowknife and Hay River as well as Edmonton, Prince Albert, Saskatchewan and Toronto.
He is described as a black male, with brown eyes and black hair.
He is six feet tall and weighs approximately 180 pounds.
Police say Yussuf is considered armed and dangerous, and therefore should not be approached.
