Ottawa Police Services are searching for Abraham Bihi, 27, after an early morning shootout on Aug. 26 near the Woodroffe campus. The police believe Bihi was allegedly involved in the shooting.

The guns and gangs unit found upwards of 40 bullet casings on 2:30 a.m. around the intersection of Navaho Drive and Woodroffe Avenue after receiving multiple 911 calls from nearby residents.
