Attempted murder charges against suspect in Edmonton attack

Attempted murder charges against suspect in Edmonton attack

Canadian police said early on Sunday that an attack on an officer outside a football game with a auto and knife and a high-speed chase of a U-Haul that left four people injured in the western city of Edmonton, Alberta, are being investigated as acts of terrorism.

According to Edmonton Police Chief Rod Knecht, a flag of the terrorist group Daesh (ISIS) was found in the vehicle.

Abdulahi Hasan Sharif faces five counts of attempted murder, four counts of unsafe driving causing bodily harm, risky operation of a motor vehicle and one weapons-related charge. "It's a testament to his experience and training that he survived".

At the time, an investigation was launched, and Sharif and others were questioned by the police.

Edmonton Mayor Don Iveson urged calm and compassion.

Police set up checkpoints in the area and began stopping cars, and held up a U-Haul van driver whose identification matched the registered owner of the Malibu. "We can succumb to that or we can rise above it". "We know that Canada's strength comes from our diversity, and we will not be cowed by those who seek to divide us or promote fear", he said.

"Law enforcement authorities from the United States are in touch with their Canadian counterparts to offer assistance with the ongoing investigation", the statement read.

Then around 11:33, a U-Haul truck was stopped during a traffic stop, but fled the scene, hitting four pedestrians before the tactical unit conducted a maneuver to put it on its side and the driver was taken into custody. "We continue to collect and gather information related to this investigation ... if additional charges are supported, they will be pursued at that time".

The driver, a 30-year-old male, "deliberately attempted to hit pedestrians" during the police chase and was arrested after his vehicle overturned, said police, adding that "based on evidence at the scenes and the actions of the suspect", these incidents are being investigated as "acts of terrorism".

Austin Elgie, manager of The Pint bar just west of the downtown core, also saw the van zoom by with police giving chase. "It just came around the corner, ripping".

A man revved his vehicle and crashed through, deliberate hitting the policeman. "I thought at first he was pulling over for the cops coming by, but he was clearly the one they were chasing".

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau called it a "terrorist attack" and said he was both "deeply concerned and outraged" by "this senseless act of violence". It's not who we are.
