Police seek help locating shooting suspect

The Rochester Police Department is looking for help from the community in locating a suspect who allegedly shot a man in the leg.

Liban Mohamed Ahmed, 29, allegedly shot a 22-year-old man in the leg on July 29 in Southeast Rochester. An arrest warrant has been issued for Ahmed, charging him with second-degree assault and weapons violations.

Rochester Police Capt. John Sherwin said Ahmed is believed to have ties to the Twin Cities metro area.

Sherwin said police believe he may be in danger because people are "actively pursuing him," and "the police may be his best option at this point so we want him to turn himself in," he said.

Individuals with information should contact Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS, or the non-emergency number, 507-328-6800. If spotted, please call 911.
