Yukon RCMP have released the name of the territory’s seventh homicide victim this year.

Mohamed Nagiel Saddek Nagem, 25, was shot while driving on the Alaska Highway near the Wann Road intersection on the evening of Sept. 20.

Nagem, who is originally from Surrey, B.C., died as a result of his injuries the following day.

The Yukon RCMP’s Major Crime Unit says they are continuing to investigate his death as a homicide. No charges have been laid.

According to police, multiple shots were heard at around 6:40 the evening of the shooting and the incident involved two vehicles.

The passenger in Nagem’s vehicle was not injured.

Investigators also confirmed Wednesday afternoon that they are no longer requesting the public’s assistance in locating a red Dodge Ram pickup truck seen leaving the scene of the crime.

A vehicle matching this description was seized Sept. 21 from downtown Whitehorse. RCMP are investigating its potential involvement in the shooting.

A firearm was also recovered at the scene of the crime.

Whitehorse RCMP are asking anyone who may have seen or heard something the evening of the shooting to contact them at 667-5555.

Information can also be provided anonymously to Crime Stoppers at www.crimestoppersyukon.ca or 1-800-222-8477.

Hey Dave...thanks for that. The apple cart eh? Too many folks have been coached well to jump off said cart of reality. They feel more comfortable in a mob of cultural Marxists chanting like zombies about diversity.
UN kool aid has impaired the brains of many.

@woodcutter, Your definition of 'hate' is actually how when a Canadian has the gumption to step up and say what is happening in this country they get labeled by people such as yourself in an attempt to quiet any disagreement on the matter. Some of us didn't fall off the apple cart yesterday and don't buy that load of ----.

Would rather they A:released his name on day one so friends, family, or loved ones could learn of his death in a head line? Or B: they not ask for your help at all?
Please realize that what the RCMP does in a homicide investigation is not about you. Believe it or not...they probably know how to investigate a murder better than you no matter how many Murder She Wrote episodes you have watched.

josey, its not fair or right to assume that he is a new Canadian, he could have been born here and be a third generation Canadian. I believe he would be referred to as an "old stock Canadian" by now. Your comments are purposely made to create hate and focus that hate on a identifiable group.

Saying that, I think its a good news story, any time the drug dealing scum bags pop each other off. We only need look at our own community and the fact that there is a demand for their product, and there has been since I came here in the 80's. We only need look at our own reflection to point fingers at.

It took 16 days for the R.C.M.P. to release this guy's name (and still no physical description ?)
and yet they were asking for the public's help on day one !

Langley BC, named after it's area code, like I said, drug deal gone bad.

Mohamed eh....Now there is a name one rarely sees in the news.
And Surrey, what a peaceful community rife with grateful new Canadians.
Hard to believe cultures clash when one views Surrey in all its peace and harmony.
Till the next “random” violence hits our one lovely community....

Smells like a drug deal gone bad as usual. Funny, a little town and they can't find any killers.
