OTTAWA — A teenage girl has been charged with first-degree murder in the death of a young Ottawa man, while investigators continue to search for another suspect.
Twenty-one-year-old Mohamed Hassan was killed on July 27 and his body was found along a walking path behind an east-end Ottawa high school.
Ottawa police say the 17-year-old girl was arrested with assistance from police in North Bay, Ont., and she is set to appear in court Sunday.
Meanwhile, a Canada-wide arrest warrant has been issued for another suspect in the murder.
Investigators believe 21-year-old Jeffrey Dondji is in northern Ontario.
Dondji is described as a Black man, six-foot-two inches tall with a prominent scar above his left upper lip.
