The death of a candidate in Venezuela’s highly-contested elections taking place on Sunday is being investigated after a group of assailants entered his home and fired several shots, a local prosecutor has said, according to the Venezuelan Public Ministry.

Assailants burst into the home of 39-year-old José Félix Pineda Saturday night, according to an attorney for Ciudad Bolivar, the capital of Venezuela's southeastern Bolívar State. The news of Pineda's death ahead of today’s vote was announced Sunday via the Venezuela’s Public Ministry’s Twitter account.

“A group of people broke into the residence of the victim located in the sector Brisas del Sur Tres and shot several shots,” the ministry said on Twitter.

Pineda was on a ticket to become part of Venezuela’s potential new constitutional assembly, which would be tasked with rewriting the country’s constitution.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro cast an unusual early morning vote just after 6 a.m. on Sunday in the election for the constitutional assembly that his political opponents contend would ensure that the ruling socialist party continues its grip on the South American country. Today’s vote was ordered by decree, and no referendum was held to indicate a majority is seeking change.
