Police believe that Mohamed, a.k.a “Scotty,” may have left Yellowknife for Edmonton or Toronto.  

“At this time, we believe Mr. Mohamed may have fled the area and we are seeking any information that may indicate his whereabouts, either currently, or over the past 18 days,” Const. Matt Halstead in a press release Wednesday.  

“The investigation still indicates this is not a random incident.  While there may be some element of risk to the public, we do not believe there is imminent danger to the general public. We advise extreme caution.
