Toronto man charged in connection to Saskatoon murder gets bail
A 19-year-old Toronto man charged in connection to the murder of Macdonald George was released from custody on Thursday, while two other co-accused men had their cases adjourned and will remain in custody.
Zakaria Mahamod was released on $500 cash bail and will soon leave for Toronto, where he's from.
Mahamod is charged with gun-related offenses after George was shot and killed on Victoria Day in downtown Saskatoon.
The release conditions state Mahamod must leave Saskatchewan by 6 p.m. Friday, and is only allowed to return for court appearances.
Mahamod is also banned from contacting a list of witnesses, including the three co-accused.
Two of them -- 24-year-old Shamsa Noor and 21-year-old Hanad Farah -- will return to Saskatoon Provincial Court on June 27.
Their bail hearings, if they choose to have one, will be held at Court of Queen's Bench. Noor was recently charged with second degree murder, and Farah with accessory after the fact to murder.
The fourth co-accused, 23-year-old Lauren Garand, received bail in May. She faces the same charges as Mahamod.
