WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Investigators say someone shot and killed Rahman Liadi in the Houston Moore Housing Complex early Thursday morning. Liadi died at the scene of the shooting.
Tonight, the victim’s mother is speaking out and remembering her son.
Rosita Liadi said Monday night the family was playing cards, and today they are mourning the loss of Rahman.
“He’s gone, and that’s on the will of God,” she said. “He did great things, you know, and that’s what I am going to remember him by. He went ahead instead of going backwards.”
Liadi’s family says he was a friendly person and worked hard for everything he had. He was a South Brunswick High School graduate and worked for Verizon Wireless.
Wednesday night was the last time his mother heard from him, when he called to tell her he loved her.
“I asked my son what is wrong. He said, ‘Nothing,’ not knowing that my son either he was dying or something had happened to him at that time,” Rosita said.
She says her son’s love is what will get her through this difficult time.
“Love conquers everything,” she said. “Love is something that will bind people together.”
As for a message to her son’s killer, she said, “As his mother, trust and believe me when I say this, somebody will have to answer to me, because I will not sit here and let somebody get away with murder.”
