Hit and run leaves one Kansas City teen dead

The wrongful death of a young man has ignited the Kansas City islamic community. A funeral was held at a Mosque, for the hit and run of 15-year old Abdisamad Sheikh-Hussein at the Islamic Society of Greater Kansas City. For, almost, the last fifty years, Taalib-Ud-Din Al-Ansare has stood against wrongful deaths, and the heartbreaking trend has continued. Abdisamad was a student at Staley Highschool, passing away Thursday evening after being hit by an SUV outside a Somali Community center around Admiral Boulevard and Lydia Avenue in Kansas City, Mo. Al- Ansare was very touched by the community support, the young people that came from his school of all races and creeds.

The drive of the SUV had fled the scene after the crash, but was later caught by authorities a short time later. Prosecutors charged Ahmed H. Aden, 34, with the murder in the case. Aden told police he lost control of his vehicle, later changing his story, stating he was looking for four men who had threatened him. Aden said he did not mean to killt he teen, but thought Abdisamad was one of the men who threatened him. The FBI is assisting with the police investigation.
