The U.S. Marshals Service is currently seeking Abdirhman Ahmad Noor, who is charged with attempted murder.
Noor, 24, of Aberdeen, failed to show up at a court hearing Tuesday. Authorities have been looking for him since.
He has been free on a $50,000 cash bond since Oct. 11. He faces two counts of attempted murder and two counts of aggravated assault in connection to a July 8 shooting near the Foxridge Apartments along Third Avenue Southeast.
According to a news release from the Marshals Service, Noor is considered armed and dangerous. He is 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 165 pounds with black hair and brown eyes.
Noor is accused of shooting at two men. During a previous court hearing, Brown County State’s Attorney White said Noor chased the men down the street while firing his gun. Noor shot one man, White said, then stood over the injured man and shot him a second time.
Noor was scheduled to appear at the Brown County Courthouse for a motions hearing Feb. 21. At that time his attorney, Bill Gerdes of Aberdeen, said his client had the flu and was unable to make it. The hearing was rescheduled for Tuesday, when Noor was a no-show.
Gerdes declined an opportunity to comment.
The pretrial motions hearing was scheduled to address a motion filed by Gerdes seeking to suppress comments made by Noor to law officers on July 8. His trial was set for March 15-17.
Judge Jon Flemmer Tuesday issued a warrant for Noor’s arrest.
Noor’s whereabouts are unknown, the release said. Aberdeen Police Department Capt. Eric Duven said Friday police continue to follow leads concerning Noor’s location, but he hasn’t been found.
Without Noor present, little action could be taken in court. However, Flemmer did approve a motion filed by Gerdes seeking use of a supplemental confidential jury questionnaire. In the motion, Gerdes notes he is asking for the confidential questionnaire to ensure a fair and impartial jury can be selected.
Also in the document, Gerdes referenced that Noor was born in Somalia and that there has been an effort by President Donald Trump to temporarily suspending the entry of people from Somalia and six other countries into the U.S. The executive order, however, has been challenged in court.
At a prior court hearing, Gerdes said that Noor had lived in Aberdeen for three years at the time of his arrest.
