MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Minneapolis Police credit tips from the public with helping them find a teenager suspected of killing a woman.
Police believe 17-year-old Ahmed Abdi fatally shot 21-year-old Ayan Abdulahi at a residence on the 2400 block of Portland Avenue on the afternoon of April 11.
Abdi was arrested out of state and is now in custody. Investigators released pictures of his distinct tattoos in hopes someone would recognize them and alert authorities.
Police originally said they didn’t know the exact relationship between the suspect and victim, but say this likely wasn’t a random act of violence.
