Assembly member shot at his home

Adzahli was killed in his home by unknown assailants who broke into his apartment at dawn of Sunday, March 1.

The armed assailants allegedly used cement blocks to destroy the assembly member’s burglar-proof doors before entering his room.

The late assemblyman’s wife and child, who also sustained injuries in the attack have since been treated and discharged from the hospital.
