MMA fighter Aaron Rajman was killed Monday night after several men broke into his West Boca home and shot him, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office has confirmed.

"I'm just literally at a loss for words. Everyone I talked to is sickened," said Dave Zalewski, a pal of the late Rajman and current Miami fight promoter. "He was the most humble guy around, he never talked bad about people."

As RadarOnline.com can report, men burst into the star's Florida house at 10:24 p.m. this past Monday. They reportedly argued with Rajman about an unknown topic, shot him at least once and then drove away, leaving the 25-year-old unconscious.

A devoted Jew, Rajam was beloved within the religious community, as he spent years teaching kids at a Jewish community school.

Rabbi Zalman Bukiet, director of the Chabad of West Boca Raton, told WPTV-Ch. 5, "This was a special young man who had a heart of gold. It's a tragedy."

The fighter also wrote an essay for MMAFutures.com, in which the MMA champ spoke of his battle with drugs and crime as a teen. He claimed his main focus in life was now his family, his community and his faith.

"I'm most happy and successful when I can help or at least maybe inspire the people around me," he wrote.

The late MMA fighter added: "If you're a fighter or not, if you want something, stay at it. Dreams come true even if you doubted it once or twice."

Desvastated friend Zalewski told authorities that Rajman's teammates are also deeply shocked.

The athlete had reportedly been training since he was 16 with American Top Team in Coconut Creek, and just last week had taught law enforcement officers in Palm Beach County how to disarm an attacker using Krav Maga techniques.

The MMA South Florida shared a post on their Facebook page, which read: "The world lost another warrior today. R.I.P Aaron Rajman. You will be missed."

The tragic shooting of Ramjan was the second within a six-minute span in Palm Beach County, as second before a man was shot in front of the Grocery Stop in the 1500 block of Railroad Avenue. He is expected to survive.

No further information on the shooting has been exposed, and the reasoning remains unknown.
