Police are asking the public to help them identify a man they want to talk to about the Oct. 29 homicide of Guled Ahmed on Carruthers Avenue.

Ottawa Police are seeking the publics help to identify a man in relation to a homicide on Carruthers Avenue on October 29th.

Ahmed, 23, was shot multiple times at close range as he returned to an Airbnb rental after attending a wedding, and fled to a back alley, where he was found dead minutes later.

The man in pictures released Wednesday may live in Toronto or in western Canada, possibly Alberta or Saskatchewan, police said Wednesday.

Police were called to Carruthers Avenue just before 4 a.m. on October 29 after residents reported hearing gunshots.

A male party that Ottawa police want to speak to in relation to the murder of Guled Ahmed is shown in this handout photo.

Anyone with information regarding this investigation is asked to call Major Crime Section at 613-236-1222, ext. 5493 or the Major Crime Tipline at 613-236-1222 ext. 5477. 

Ottawa police have released an image of an unidentified party that they want to speak to in relation to the murder of a 23-year-old Toronto man last month.

The Ottawa Police Service Major Crime Unit is hoping the public can help to identify a man who investigators want to speak to in relation to the death of Guled Ahmed.

Guled Ahmed was fatally shot in the Mechanicsville neighbourhood of Ottawa in the early morning hours of Oct. 29.

Police have previously said that they believe Ahmed was targeted, though no motive for the homicide has been provided.

In a news release issued on Wednesday, Ottawa police appealed to the public for assistance in identifying a male party that they say may reside in Toronto or in western Canada.

Police did not identify the male as a suspect but said that investigators do want to speak with him concerning Ahmeds murder.
