Man killed outside First Nations casino in Alberta

A 24-year-old man was killed outside the casino on the Enoch Cree Nation in Alberta on Saturday.

Muhammed Ali Ibrahim was apparently involved in an altercation at the $178 million River Cree Resort and Casino. A 20-year-old woman was injured during the incident.

A regular patron of the casino said the nightclub where the fight took place is overrun by gangs. "We try to enjoy ourselves on a Saturday night and you can't. It's loud and they're fighting. It's no good," the patron told The Edmonton Sun.

The reserve is located west of Edmonton.
