Male arrested out of province and returned to Alberta to face assault, weapon charges

A 22-year-old male charged in connection with an incident a where a firearm was pointed at multiple people during an out of control party last fall, has been returned to Alberta from Ontario to answer to the charges.

On October 28, 2018 at approximately 1:30 a.m. a male, who was not identified at that time, was involved in a physical altercation at a community hall along the 600 block of 21 Street South during an out of control party. During the party a fire extinguisher was set off inside the hall and numerous teens fled outside. While everyone was gathering outside, a physical altercation ensued between multiple partygoers and the male was struck in the head multiple times. As the fight was being broken up the male pulled a pistol out of his waistband and pointed it at multiple people. The large group immediately began to disperse. A short time later the male ran across the street and hid under a vehicle. When a witness observed him and asked if he was okay, the male crawled out from the vehicle and pointed the weapon at the witness and another group of people. Seconds later, a car pulled up and the male fled the scene.

Police received multiple 911 calls and responded to the incident. Following further investigation the male was later identified and charged but police were unable to locate him. A warrant was subsequently issued for his arrest. On June 26, 2019 members of the Ottawa Police Service arrested the male and he was ultimately returned to Alberta to answer to the charges.

Abshir Mohamed Adiid, 22, of Calgary, is charged with assault with a weapon and possession of a weapon dangerous to the public.

On July 3, 2019 a bail hearing was held and a Justice of the Peace released Adiid on a recognizance. He is scheduled to appear in court July 31.
