Greater Sudbury Police investigators have issued a Canada-wide warrant for the arrest of two men wanted for attempted murder in connection with the shooting of a bouncer early Thursday morning at Solid Gold VIP Lounge.
A warrant has been issued for Ali Nokour, also known as Ali-Nokour Chougui and Ali Djiddi Abakar, 18, of no fixed address. He is black, 6-foot-2, with medium length bushy hair.
Nokour is wanted for attempted murder, possession of weapons dangerous, discharging a firearm with intent to endanger life, unauthorized possession of a firearm, two counts of breach of probation and possession of a firearm contrary to a prohibition order.
The second man wanted is Djamal Hassan Aboum, 24, a black male, 5-foot-9, with a thin build and short hair.
He is wanted for attempted murder, accessory after the fact, having a firearm in a motor vehicle and dangerous operation of a motor vehicle.
Police say the men are from Quebec and have associates in Sudbury. A third man allegedly involved in the 1 a.m. shooting in the strip club’s parking lot was arrested and is in police custody. No details were released about him.
Four people, three black males and one caucasian woman, went to Solid Gold early Thursday morning, he said. Two men entered the club, while one man and the woman remained outside.
The woman has been eliminated as having any involvement in the shooting. He would not give details about where she was from or why she was with the men.
Zimmerman said another disturbance occurred in the parking lot of the Falconbridge Road club.
The two men who left the club got into the vehicle and it proceeded toward the front of the building where a bouncer was. One of the two men who had been in the club assaulted the bouncer with a belt, but the bouncer was able to “restrain” his attacker, said Zimmerman.
Another man shot him once, and when the 20-year-old guard, whose first name is Josh, was trying to leave, he was shot twice again, said the inspector.
It is unknown how many shots were fired in all. The victim was treated at Sudbury Regional Hospital and released Thursday morning.
“They shot (the bouncer), he tried to leave the area and they shoot him,” said Zimmerman.
They fled in the vehicle, pursued by an employee of Solid Gold who was arriving for work at the time of the disturbance. The vehicle was followed along The Kingsway and ended up on Mont Adam Street in the Flour Mill area, where the men fled the vehicle.
A police spokesman said Thursday that it is thought the weapon used in the shooting was a handgun.
Zimmerman said because it is early in the investigation, police are working to establish a motive for the shooting “and everything else.”
Greater Sudbury Police Chief Frank Elsner told reporters the two wanted men are dangerous and should not be approached. The chief urged citizens to call 911 if they see the men or phone the police service at 705- 675-9171 with other information.
