$100K reward offered for information to find first-degree murder suspect

CALGARY — Calgary police is partnering with the Bolo Program and Calgary Crime Stoppers to offer a $100,000 reward for help tracking down a first-degree murder suspect wanted for the 2015 death of a Calgary man.

Police were called to reports of a shooting in the 100 block of Del Ray Road N.E. about 2:30 p.m. on Dec. 13, 2015.

Officers arrived to find Hussein Merhi, 26, in medical distress and he died at the scene.

Two suspects were later identified.

Joseph Trieu, 26, of Calgary, was charged in July 2019 with one count of accessory after the fact to murder. A second man, Kier Bryan Granado, 24, is wanted for first-degree murder.

Police said they believe the attack was targeted and Granada and Merhi knew each other.

The Bolo Program is described online as “a breakthrough initiative leveraging social media, technology, and innovative engagement to encourage citizens like you to be on the lookout for Canada‚Äôs most wanted.”

Anyone with information is asked to call CPS at 403-266-1234, the homicide tip line at 403-428-8877, or Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477.

The reward will be available for six months, until July, 20.
