Police investigate Winnabow man's murder in Wilmington


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A Winnabow man is dead after a shooting overnight in Wilmington. Now police are looking for his killer, and family members are trying to figure out what happened.

The family of Rahman Liadi, 25, did not want to show their faces on camera, but his sister says he was a good guy who spent most of his time working.

"He went to South Brunswick. He graduated," she said. "He owned 10 percent of a company. He worked at verizon. He never bothered anybody. My only brother."

Wilmington Police say their Shot Spotter system led them to the Houston Moore housing complex around 12:15 a.m. Thursday. That's where they found Liadi with a gunshot wound. They say he died at the scene.

A police spokesman says officers are looking for answers.

"Basically, we're looking for help from the public to try and identify who might have, who might be responsible for this," Cpl. Kevin Smith said.

Liadi's family told us he was shot twice. They also say there was a gun found under his body. They speculate he was trying to get out his gun to defend himself as his killer got away. Relatives say Liadi had a permit for the gun.

Court records show Liadi had a may court date for carrying a concealed weapon and marijuana possession.

Now his family is left hoping someone knows who killed him.

"Just please call the Wilmington Police Department," Liadi's cousin said.

"Come forward, please," Liadi's sister said.

At this point, police won't say whether they found a gun on Liadi.

If you have any information about the murder, call Wilmington Police.
