Hassan Ali, better known by his rap moniker, was arrested on Saturday night in Windsor, Ont., according to his lawyer, Jordan Silver.
Hashim Omar Hashi, 20, described as ‘humble, kind and hardworking,’ was gunned down last Sunday while he was in his vehicle.
Silver says his client was charged with accessory after the fact and transferred to Toronto, where he is awaiting a bail hearing.
Ali “maintains his innocence,” says Silver, noting, “there’s still a lot of information surrounding this that we’re unaware of.”
Hashi, 20, was killed near Jane Street and Falstaff Avenue on Jan. 31. He was shot multiple times on entry to a parking garage while trying to return home. Hashi is Toronto’s fifth homicide of 2021.
Officers arrived and found Hashi suffering from multiple gunshot wounds. He was pronounced dead on scene.
