Police applied for the warrant Monday for Mohamed Ibrahim Sail, 24, of Calgary, Alberta, who is wanted on one charge of second-degree murder and whose current location is unknown.

Police said Sail is considered dangerous and witnesses should not approach him but instead contact police immediately if spotted.

A third individual, who was seen leaving the area just prior to the shooting, has been identified but police have not released his identity and said he is not cooperating with the investigation.

Cook was fatally shot on June 14 after he left his cellphone in a taxi cab and electronically tracked it to a parking lot at 1181 Highbury Ave. North in London.

Upon arriving at the address with a relative at about 5:15 a.m., police said they approached a silver 2004 Mazda 6 four-door sedan occupied by three men and a “discussion occurred about the phone.”

Police said one of the passengers exited the car and walked away from the area while the vehicle started to drive away, which is when Cook then partially climbed onto the car and held onto the driver’s side door.

The vehicle drove northbound on Highbury Avenue and then turned east, which is when police said shots were fired and reported by witnesses.

Police responded to the scene and found the victim without vital signs after suffering multiple gunshot wounds behind a plaza located at Highbury Avenue and Huron Street.

Paramedics attempted to revive Cook, but were unsuccessful and he was pronounced dead at the scene.

Ottawa Police said on June 25 that Sultan was in a vehicle when he tried to run over two on-duty bicycle officers in downtown Ottawa at King Edward Avenue and Rideau Street around 4 p.m. on June 17, leaving one officer with minor injuries.

They said they gave chase in a squad car and ended up on Wiggins Private near the Rideau River, where they said two suspects jumped out and officers arrested one, but lost the other.

Several hours later police said they were called to the river’s edge at Range Road and Mann Avenue, where witnesses reported a man was trying to swim across the river.

Police entered the river after the man was showing signs of distress, but as they approached the suspect went under the water.

Sultan’s body was later recovered on June 27 following a two-day search.
