CALGARY – One of two teens accused in the death of a Calgary police officer is in court Thursday for his bail hearing.

Amir Abdulrahman, 19, is charged with first-degree murder in the death of Sgt. Andrew Harnett on New Year’s Eve.

Last week, a judge denied bail for the other accused, an 18-year-old who cannot be named.

Police have said Harnett was hit and dragged while attempting to stop an SUV after noticing its plates didn’t match its registration.

They allege the accused 18-year-old was driving the vehicle and Abdulrahman was a passenger.
