Victim of Sandstone double homicide had 2 gun-related charges before the courts

Police have laid charges and identified the victims of a fatal shooting in the northwest Calgary community of Sandstone on the weekend as investigators continue to seek two others connected to the killings.

Abas Ahmed Ibrahim, 27, and Mohamed Khalid Shaikh, 19, were killed while a youth remains in hospital.

Dennis Wong, 20, is charged with two counts of accessory after the fact to murder, and one count of being party to the offence of attempted murder, the Calgary Police Service said in a release Monday.

Ibrahim has a lengthy history with police.

Gang rape charges withdrawn

Ibrahim has four sets of charges before the courts, including two charges of robbery with a firearm. He was recently granted bail.

In October, he was to go on trial on one of robbery charges. Ibrahim is also facing criminal charges in Edmonton.

In 2015, Ibrahim was accused of participating in the gang rape of a 14-year-old girl, although the charges of sexual assault, sexual interference with a child under 16 and invitation to sexual touching were eventually withdrawn mid-trial

Wong was charged after police released images on Saturday of three men and a vehicle — a black Infiniti two-door coupe, with a white sticker across the top of the rear window — believed to be involved in the killings.

Police are still hoping to identify two others in the photos.
