Homicide detectives seek person of interest in 2015 murder

The Calgary Police Service Homicide Unit is seeking public assistance in locating a man who is a person of interest in a 2015 murder.

At approximately 2:30 p.m., on Sunday, Dec. 13, 2015, police responded to reports of a shooting in an alley in the 100 block of Del Ray Road N.E. When they arrived they found Hussein MERHI, 26, in medical distress. He died at the scene.

Investigators believe MERHI met up with at least two people in the alley, and at some point during the meeting an altercation occurred and the victim was killed.

Investigators are now looking for Kier Bryan GRANADO, 20, of Calgary, as a person of interest in this case.

GRANADO has been missing since shortly after the homicide. GRANADO’s family has been in contact with police and they, too, have not seen nor heard from him for approximately 17 months and are very worried about him.

GRANADO is Filipino, approximately 5’3” tall, and 95 pounds. He has black hair and brown eyes. A photo of GRANADO is available on The City of Calgary Newsroom.

Investigators are asking anyone who may have information about GRANADO’s whereabouts to contact police by calling the non-emergency line at 403-266-1234 or the Homicide Unit Tip Line at 403-428-8877. Tips can also be left anonymously by contacting Crime Stoppers using any of the following methods:
