Second arrest made in Anthony Smith shooting, man tied to alleged Rob Ford crack cocaine video
Police have made a second arrest in the “targeted” shooting of Anthony Smith, the man photographed with Mayor Rob Ford in the picture associated with an alleged crack cocaine video.
A man was arrested by the RCMP last Friday in Fort McMurray, Alta., Toronto police said Thursday morning.
Hanad Mohamed, 23, will appear in a Toronto court Friday to face a charge of first-degree murder, police said.
The arrest comes as a new unverified report says Ford told staffers that he knew the exact address where the alleged crack video was being held, according to the Toronto Star.
Anonymous sources told The Star that Ford revealed the address of an apartment complex in Rexdale during a meeting with staffers, including director of operations and logistics David Price, then deputy chief of staff Earl Provost and now-former press secretary George Christopoulos.
Price linked the alleged crack video to a killing — and discussed obtaining the video — prompting Ford’s former chief of staff, Mark Towhey, to go to the police, a source has told the National Post.
