MOORHEAD — A second person is wanted in connection with the fatal shooting of a 32-year-old at a Moorhead apartment last month.

Clay County prosecutors filed a felony charge of aiding and abetting second-degree murder on Tuesday, Oct. 5, against 29-year-old Ibrahim Abdiaziz Isaac. Court documents detailing the charge were sealed.

The Moorhead Police Department confirmed the charge is in connection to the Sept. 10 death of Abdi Mohamed Abdi near the 3000 block of 17th Street South. Idris Haji-Mohamed, 26, of Rochester, Minnesota, has been charged with second-degree murder.

He was released last month after posting $1 million for bond.

According to a criminal complaint:

Haji-Mohamed approached a vehicle Abdi was in while parked at a Casey’s General Store at 1702 30th Ave. S. Haji-Mohamed spoke with Abdi and other individuals in that vehicle before walking to and getting in another vehicle.

As the vehicle that contained Abdi drove away, the vehicle with Haji-Mohamed followed.

The vehicle Abdi was in stopped at a nearby apartment complex at 3009 18th St. S., and Abdi got out of the vehicle to smoke a cigarette. Haji-Mohamed then exits his vehicle and approaches Abdi. Video shows Abdi running away as Haji-Mohamed shoots at him.

At one point, Abdi was lying on the ground when Haji-Mohamed shot him five times at point blank, the complaint alleged.
