Thirty-year-old Abdulahi Sharif of Edmonton is the man being held in connection with Saturday night’s vehicle attacks in Alberta’s capital, multiple sources told Global News.
Sources said Sharif is expected to be charged with five counts of attempted murder as well as terrorism-related charges after an Edmonton police officer was hit by a car and stabbed outside Commonwealth Stadium and several people were hit by a U-Haul van in downtown Edmonton.
Great he’s a Somali refugee…

Well done @JustinTrudeau , as we've seen in #Edmonton it was only a matter of time before an attack was successful. Yet you keep letting them in droves. This is your fault & you don't even have the balls to call it what it is: Islamic terrorism. pic.twitter.com/XiCR8QJVsp
