32-year-old man found dead in truck Tuesday was shot: EPS

Police say a man found dead in a truck early Tuesday morning in north Edmonton died of a gunshot wound.

Thirty-two-year-old Mohamed Abdi was found dead in the driver’s seat of a black Ram truck near 94 Street and 145 Avenue around 1:30 a.m.

Abdi had been working for Brad Paddison Contracting Ltd. for the past two years. According to Brad Paddison, he was home in Edmonton on his days off when he was killed.

An autopsy Thursday determined his death to be a homicide.

“He was a great guy, he worked hard and everyone loved him,” Paddison said. “He always had a joke and was a super hard worker.

“He was the type of guy you always look forward to seeing in the morning … His coworkers and I are in shock and disbelief. We are twisted up for this, and we offer our sincere condolences to the family.”

Witnesses told police a white truck had been seen leaving the area after gunshots were heard. Shortly after, a white GMC truck was found on fire near 106 Street and 155 Avenue.
