Two men charged with second-degree murder in 2007 cold case
Investigators believe they've caught two men responsible for the shooting death of a Calgary man in an Altadore home invasion more than a decade ago.

Nader Nilianbousheri, 32, was shot and killed at his residence in the 3900 block of 16th Street S.W. on Nov. 6, 2007.

“Like all of our unsolved homicide cases they always remain open and our investigators, like they have in this case and several other cases, have been able to bring new evidence, new information together and lay charges,” Staff Sgt. Colin Chisholm said Wednesday.

Police believe he was the victim of a home invasion and got in an altercation with the culprits, which resulted in his death.

Two Ontario men, one from Ottawa, arrested, charged in 2007 Calgary cold case homicide

On Oct. 8, Calgary police arrested two men in connection with the killing with help from police in Ottawa and Toronto.

Mahamed Mohamud Mussa, 42, of Ottawa, and Mohamed Yousuf Mohamed, 43, of Toronto, were each charged with one count of second-degree murder.

“The original investigation had numerous suspects and they also had numerous aliases for the names of the suspects. The investigators followed the leads that they had.”

"Unsolved homicide investigations remain open and our investigators continue to search for new evidence with the goal of holding people accountable for their crimes," said Staff Sgt. Colin Chisholm.

CALGARY — A fresh set of eyes and advances in forensics has resulted in two arrests by Calgary police in a cold-case in which a man was shot to death.

"We strive to find answers and finality in these cases, like all homicide investigations, and bring justice to victims of homicide."

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Calgary Police Service's homicide tip line at 403-428-8877 or to contact Crime Stoppers.

“Forensics did play a role in this in confirming identity and leading to evidence against the individuals charged.”

Calgary police thanked the Ottawa Police Service and the Toronto Police Service for their support in the investigation.

Mahamed Mohamud Mussa, 42, of Ottawa and Mohamed Yousuf Mohamed, 43, of Toronto are charged with second-degree murder.

To encourage thoughtful and respectful conversations, first and last names will appear with each submission to CBC/Radio-Canada's online communities (except in children and youth-oriented communities). Pseudonyms will no longer be permitted.

It is a priority for CBC to create a website that is accessible to all Canadians including people with visual, hearing, motor and cognitive challenges.

Investigators say he was the victim of a home invasion and was involved in an altercation with the suspects.

Calgary police, assisted by members of the Ottawa and Toronto police departments, arrested two men last week.

Mahamed Mohamud Mussa was arrested in Ottawa, while Mohamed Yousuf Mohamad was taken into custody in Toronto.
