Minneapolis police looking for murder suspect Ahmed Abdi

Ahmed Abdirahim Abdi

Minneapolis police are looking for 17-year-old Ahmed Abdirahim Abdi, wanted in connection with last weekend's murder of 21-year-old Ayan Abdulahi in the Phillips neighborhood. Abdulahi was found dead on Sunday, April 12 in a house on the 2400 block of Portland Avenue S.

'Big dog' tattoos

Abdi has very distinctive red and black tattoos on the back of his hands. The tattoos look like paw prints, with the word "BIG" on back of one hand and "DOG" on the back of the other.

Harboring a fugitive is a felony

Investigators believe friends are harboring Abdi and helping him avoid an arrest. Minneapolis police have vowed to "aggressively pursue charges against anyone who is found to have aided and abetted Abdi in attempts to hide from law enforcement." The charge of aiding and abetting a fugitive is a felony.

Anyone with any information about this case is asked to send a text to 847 411 (tip 411), enter MPD and the tip or call the tipline at 612-692-TIPS (8477). All texts are anonymous. The CCN is 15-127232.
