Edmonton inner-city landlord Abdullah Shah is recovering at home after being shot in the head earlier this month, his lawyer says.
Shah, a high-profile inner-city landowner also known as Carmen Pervez, was shot at one of his businesses on Aug. 13, lawyer Paul Moreau told Postmedia.
He was rushed to hospital and as of last week was listed in critical but stable condition.
Shah has since been discharged from hospital and is recuperating at home, Moreau confirmed Monday.
Shah owns numerous residential and commercial properties in central Edmonton, which some residents say are sources of crime and disorder. He was convicted of mortgage fraud in 2008 and sentenced to five years in prison.
Moreau confirmed that Shah was shot at one of his businesses on 111 Avenue, which was searched as part of the 2019 investigation.
Detectives continue to investigate the Aug. 13 shooting but are mum on details. On Monday, Edmonton Police Service spokeswoman Cheryl Sheppard confirmed the case is still under investigation, but did not say whether investigators have identified suspects.
Postmedia reached out to Shah but did not immediately hear back.
