Calgary police ask public for help solving ‘targeted’ homicide of Ontario man

CALGARY — Investigators in Calgary are asking for the public’s help in solving a fatal shooting of an Ontario man.

Police say they responded to a call Thursday evening about shots being fired in a home in the area of 16 Avenue and Home Road N.W.

When they arrived, they found a man dead.

An autopsy by the Office of the Chief Medical Examiner confirmed him to be 23-year-old Farah Hersi Handule of Ontario, who police say is believed to have been in Calgary since Christmas Eve.

In a news release, Staff Sgt. Colin Chisholm says it was “targeted homicide carried out in a brazen way” that’s left police concerned about public safety.

They’re asking anyone who may have seen anything suspicious — specifically, people running or getting into vehicles between 8:45 p.m. and 9 p.m. in the neighbourhood — to contact them.
