Rio Claro man killed while asleep

Roger Khan, a 23-year-old man, was killed as he slept in his Ecclesville, Rio Claro home. 

According to police, around 2.30am, 19-year-old Mary Mahabir was in the living room of the family’s home tending to their 1-year-old child when a gunman entered through the open front door. 

After a brief confrontation with Mahabir, the man went to the couple’s bedroom and shot Khan before fleeing the scene. 

Khan reportedly stumbled out of the bedroom where Mahabir saw him bleeding from what appeared to be a gunshot wound to the head. He then collapsed and died. 

Rio Claro police are continuing investigations.
