Charges laid in weekend shootings

October 15, 2019

The Edmonton Police Service has arrested and charged four individuals believed to be involved in two separate shootings that took place in north Edmonton on Saturday.

On Saturday, Oct. 12, 2019, at approximately 1:35 a.m., Northeast Division officers responded to the report of a personal robbery involving a firearm at a business in the area of 127 Avenue and 97 Street.

It was reported to police that two males were standing outside of the business when a maroon coloured sedan with five occupants arrived at the location. All five occupants reportedly exited the vehicle and approached the two males demanding their personal property. A brief altercation allegedly took place and one of the vehicle’s occupants shot one of the males. The vehicle and all five occupants then reportedly fled the scene.

EMS responded, treated and transported a 17-year-old male to hospital with non-life threatening injuries. The other male was not injured.

At approximately 10:40 p.m. the same day, Northeast Division officers responded to the report of a shooting outside of an entertainment establishment in the area of 111 Avenue and 96 Street.

It was reported to police that a maroon Acura sedan with multiple occupants arrived at the location. An altercation then reportedly took place between the Acura’s occupants and two males and one of the vehicle’s occupants shot the two males. The sedan and the suspects then reportedly fled the scene.

EMS responded, treated and transported the two injured males, aged 21 and 22, to hospital with serious but non-life threatening injuries.

Police located the Acura a short time later and took four suspects, three males and one female, into custody without incident.

Following a thorough investigation, officers believe the four suspects were involved in both shootings. Investigators are not seeking any additional suspects.

Omarr Jamal Cameron-Bramwell, 19, Gabir Fadlelmanan, 22, Wahid Mounji, 20, and Alana Nicole Kovac, 18, have subsequently been remanded and each has been charged with aggravated assault (x2), careless use of a firearm, possess offensive weapon dangerous to the public, use of a firearm while committing an offence, unauthorized possession of a firearm/weapon in a vehicle and unauthorized possession of a firearm.

Police seek tips in violent, random assault on elderly woman

May 21, 2020
The Edmonton Police Service is seeking witnesses and information about an alleged random assault that occurred in northeast Edmonton last week.

On Wednesday, May 13, 2020, at approximately 3:30 p.m., police responded to a report of a male suspect who allegedly violently assaulted an 84-year-old female. At approximately 2:45 p.m., the female complainant was reportedly watering the front lawn at a townhome in the area of 134 Avenue and 40 Street when the suspect approached her on foot, punched her in the face and kicked her repeatedly after she fell to the ground. The suspect then immediately fled on foot.

The female was taken to hospital with serious non-life-threatening injuries.

The suspect is described as a black male in his 20s or 30s, approximately 5’6” – 5’9” in height, with a large muscular or heavy-set stature. He was wearing a black windbreaker-style jacket, black or very dark blue jeans, white runners and a dark-coloured baseball cap.

“The violent and random nature of this assault against a senior citizen is unusual and troubling,” says Det. Sonja Wepruk. “We are releasing video of the suspect that was recorded just before the assault occurred in the hopes that it will generate tips to help identify this man.”

Anyone with any information about this crime is asked to contact the EPS at 780-423-4567 or #377 from a mobile phone. Anonymous information can also be submitted to Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477 or online at www.p3tips.com/250.

Florida sheriff announces he’ll lay down the law and his video message goes viral

Published on

This video is obviously striking a cord across North America.  On Monday, Sheriff Wayne Ivey of Brevard County, Florida stood in front of a home which his officers have been called to nearly 100 times over the past year.  He warned the inhabitants of the home and any visitors that they’re going to getting special attention from now on.  In less than 24 hours, the unique warning has been seen around the world.  The video posted to facebook has been viewed over 10 million times.  It has 50,000 comments and over 135,000 shares.  It will be interesting to know the outcome of this situation, and perhaps even more interesting to see if other police departments follow suit.  Not sure how this would go over in Canada.
