The 17-year-old suspect in the Sept. 22 murder of Ahmednur Ali has been charged with the crime.
Ramadan Abdi Shiekhosman has been charged with felony second-degree murder in the shooting death of Ali, according to Minneapolis Police Department. Shiekhosman will be tried as an adult.
The shooting death of Ahmednur Ali occurred outside the Brian Coyle Community Center in Cedar-Riverside, where the 20-year-old Augsburg College student had just finished his first day of volunteering. Shiekhosman, who was 16 at the time, had argued with Ali as the college student supervised the gym. When Ali emerged from the community center, Sheikhosman allegedly struck him over the head with a handgun and shot him.
