Ottawa police are treating the death of Mohamed Hassan — whose body was found behind a school Monday evening — as a homicide.
Three people found the body of the 21-year-old Ottawa man behind the Collège catholique Samuel-Genest on Carsons Road, east of the Aviation Parkway, at about 5:15 p.m.
The body showed obvious signs of violence, Ottawa police said in an interview Tuesday morning. By Tuesday afternoon, they confirmed he had been shot.
Nobody has been arrested and police said they didn't have any information on a suspect or suspects to release.
Anyone in the area between 2 p.m. and 5 p.m. Monday is asked to call investigators at 613-236-1222 extension 5493 or call Crime Stoppers to leave an anonymous tip.
