WINNIPEG - A 28-year-old man who’d been wanted in the October death of Mohamed Mohiadin Ahmed is in custody facing multiple charges after an armed standoff this weekend, along with two others. Police say they discovered, and arrested, Jesse James Daher while executing a search warrant for the two other men - Terry Ryan Monkman and Dwayne Louis Simard - on McGee St in Winnipeg’s West End.
Daher had a Canada-wide warrant for his arrest since mid-February, and is now charged with second degree murder in connection with Ahmed's death. Police are still looking for Evan Brightnose-Baker, another suspect in that case.
Monkman and Simard, who are both 37, are facing multiple firearms-related charges. Police say while Monkman left the home when police arrived, Simard and Daher stayed inside the home for eight hours, prompting the use of the WPS’s armored vehicle, as a crisis negotiation unit feared the two were armed. After the men finally left, investigators found a loaded sawed-off shotgun, as well as more ammunition, inside the building.
21-year-old Brightnose-Baker is considered armed and dangerous, and police believe it’s likely that he’s still in Winnipeg. He’s described as a 5’5” and around 126 pounds, with a medium build, brown eyes, and black hair.
Anyone with info that can lead to Brightnose-Baker’s arrest is asked to call 911. Those with any other info that can help the investigation are asked to call the Homicide Unit at 204-986-6508, or Crime Stoppers at 204-786-8477 (TIPS).
