Calgary police have charged a fourth man in connection with the death of 17-year-old Ezzulddin Al-Ogaidi.
Al-Ogaidi’s body was found in a remote area north of Morley, Alta., on Monday.
On Thursday, police announced 21-year-old Matin Hamid Ahmet had been charged with manslaughter, careless use of a firearm, pointing a firearm, possession of a weapon for dangerous purpose, possession of a firearm without a licence and possession of a weapon obtained by crime. Police said Ahmet was initially taken into custody on Monday, and then released pending further investigation. He was then arrested and charged on Wednesday.
Ahmet is scheduled to appear in court on Thursday, Dec. 15.
Investigators haven’t released many details surrounding Al-Ogaidi’s death, but said his body was found following an investigation which began on Saturday evening, when officers were called to a home in Monterey Park for a check on welfare.
The caller told police they heard what sounded like a gunshot at a home in the 0-100 block of San Diego Way N.E. and were concerned for the people living there. Initially, police weren’t able to find anything unusual at the house, which investigators described as empty and dark.
Police have charged Ahmed Abid, 24, Mohammed Khalil, 28, and Ashraf Jasem Ajil, 23, with accessory after the fact to murder.
