Police make arrests in cold case homicide

The Calgary Police Service Homicide Unit has made two arrests in connection with the homicide of Nader NILIANBOUSHERI, which occurred over a decade ago.

On Nov. 6, 2007, Nader NILIANBOUSHERI, 32, was shot and killed at his residence in the 3900 block of 16 Street S.W. Police believe NILIANBOUSHERI was the victim of a home invasion and was involved in an altercation with the suspects, which resulted in his death.

On Tuesday, Oct. 8, 2019, CPS investigators, with assistance from members of the Ottawa Police Service and the Toronto Police Service, arrested two men in connection with this homicide.

Mahamed Mohamud MUSSA, 42, of Ottawa, was charged with one count of second-degree murder in connection with the case.

Mohamed Yousuf MOHAMED, 43, of Toronto, was charged with one count of second-degree murder in connection with the case.

“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 Sergeant Colin Chisholm. “We strive to find answers and finality in these cases, like all homicide investigations, and bring justice to victims of homicide.”

The Calgary Police Service would like to thank both the Ottawa Police Service and the Toronto Police Service for their extensive support in this investigation and the arrests of MUSSA and MOHAMED.
