Somalian Refugee Charged With Shooting Murder of North Dakota Mother

A Somalian refugee has been charged with the shooting death of a North Dakota mother, just over a year after being convicted of felony terrorizing in North Dakota.

Grand Forks, North Dakota police identified 26-year old Ahmen Mohamed Abdullahi as the arrestee in the shooting of 28-year old Megan Lea Gustafson. Police reports regarding the shooting recount police arriving at an apartment complex early Sunday morning after receiving reports of a suspicious person in the area. They spoke to Gustafson after knocking on an apartment door, and heard arguing as they left the scene. A gunshot was heard inside, with the victim and Abdullahi leaving the partner, the latter allegedly holding a gun. The victim later died at an area hospital.

Police believe the two knew each other and are investigating their relationship.

Abdullahi was already prohibited from owning a gun, stemming from a conviction in 2020 for ‘terrorizing.’ The gun found at the scene of the crime was reported stolen from a vehicle in Grand Forks in September.

Abdullahi appears to have entered the United States as a refugee from Somalia. It’s unclear whether he’s a US citizen, and why his earlier felony convictions didn’t result in deportation proceedings. He is currently being held at the Grand Forks County Correctional Center without bond.
