A 59-year-old maintenance worker was brutally beaten to death by a man with a shovel at a mosque on Thursday, MPs said.

Seminole County investigators say the suspect reported to the Husseini Islamic Center on Hester Avenue in unincorporated Sanford early in the morning before sunrise.

They believe he climbed the fence, used a propane tank to smash a rear window and when he entered they say that’s when he was confronted by the victim.

“He felt this was his home and the property within was the property of (Julius) Caesar, and his intent was to defend that even at the cost of murder,” Sheriff Dennis Lemma said.

Lemma said Facebook posts made by the suspect hours before his discovery show he was targeting an address on Hester that led to the Husseini Islamic Center.

Ahmed Raslan, 38, even sent the messages to the National Guard and the Seminole County Sheriff’s Office saying, among other things, “Help and pick up immediately to secure Caesar and Caesar First Stolen.”

“It looks like this place was picked at random or God was speaking to this person,” Leema said.

Investigators say when Raslan used a propane tank to break into the mosque, he was met by the victim inside – a maintenance worker who also provided security.

Detectives believe there was an altercation before the victim was beaten to death with a shovel.

Raslan took off in the victim’s minivan.

“We think he may have been disturbed and believed exactly what he was doing,” Leema said.

The manhunt turned violent.

More than 100 miles away, Indian River County deputies found Raslan in a parking lot.

They said the confrontation forced the deputies to fire.

Mosque chairman Mahmood Dhalla says the as-yet-unidentified victim was a dedicated employee. He was the first person there on Thursday before the children were expected to arrive at school.

“He always said I would protect this place with my life and I think he did,” Dhalla said.

Deputies say the suspect was unarmed but pointed his pistol-like fingers at them when confronted.

It was then that they shot him three times.

He is being treated in hospital.

As for the victim, members of the Islamic Center and the community plan to honor him for what they call heroic actions he took this morning.
