The last time Mustafa Ahmed hit the old Sentral nightclub in the ByWard Market, he left as a fugitive wanted in the killing of gang-banger Omar Rashid-Ghader. It was the other side of midnight, on Sunday Aug.
14, 2016, and Rashid-Ghader, 33, got into it with Ahmed, 28. They started shouting at one another, and then it turned into what would be a deadly fight.
Rashid-Ghader, an aspiring rapper, hit Ahmed over the head with a bottle and Ahmed pulled a handgun. They fought and ended up on the floor. The fight ended when Ahmed allegedly shot Rashid-Ghader and fled the Dalhousie Street nightclub.
Rashid-Ghader was dead on the floor, and police and later paramedics tried to revive him with no luck. Ahmed, the accused killer, lived on the lam until Thursday when police arrested him in Toronto on a warrant for second-degree murder.
Omar Rashid-Ghader was shot multiple times on Aug.
14, 2016. The killing was captured on nightclub security cameras, according to police.
Ahmed, who is being represented by Abergel Goldstein, made a brief court appearance on Friday afternoon when he was formally charged. Brooklyn's Maino, who learned how to rap in prison, was the featured performer at the now-defunct Sentral on the night Rashid-Ghader died. While Rashid-Ghader dreamed of being a rapper, his legacy is nothing more than being an original member of the street gang Ledbury-Banff Crips, named after two streets in a south-end public housing project.
There were four shootings in the city on that Sunday in 2016, but the nightclub shooting was the only deadly one.
