Crown will pursue adult sentence for Andrew Harnett's killer
Al-Azan Shah Muhammad, one of two young men involved in the death of Andrew Harnett, the police sergeant who was killed in a hit-and-run, will be tried as an adult.
Harnett was killed by Muhammad and his 19-year old accomplice Amir Abdulrahman on New Year's Eve after being struck by their car while fleeing a traffic stop, dying the next day in hospital care.
Although Muhammad will likely likely be tried as a youth as he was 17-years-old at the time of the murder, which occurred 11 days earlier before his 18th birthday, the Crown will pursue a stricter sentence after he is convicted. The Crown is also requesting that bail be rejected for Muhammad.
Muhammad was allegedly driving the vehicle at the time of the murder, whereas Abdulrahman was seated in the passenger seat.
Supporters have come out in support of the slain Calgary officer:
Harnett's funeral was held on January 9th.
