    Fmr. World Champion Boxer Murdered in Atl.
    By Jay Black @ July 26, 2009 10:30 AM

    (WSB Radio) Former boxing champion and U.S. Olympian Vernon Forrest
    was shot and killed in an attempted carjacking in the Mechanicsville
    community, a police spokesperson said.

    Lt. Keith Meadows with the Atlanta police department told WSB Radio,
    Forrest was putting air in the tires of his Jaguar around 11 p.m.
    Saturday at a gas station on White Hall St. at McDaniel St.
    Investigators said at least two men jumped out of a red Chevrolet
    Monte Carlo and tried to steal Forrest's car. The boxer had a gun and
    started running after the suspects.

    "The victim and suspect became involved in a brief foot chase," Lt.
    Meadows said. "At some point, gunfire was exchanged between the two of
    them. The victim was shot at least once in the head."

    Lt. Meadows said Forrest was shot 7 or 8 times by two semi-automatic
    weapons. Investigators said they are talking to several witness.

    "At this point we have a general description of at least two black
    males driving a red Monte Carlo." Lt. Meadows said.

    Police don't think the suspects knew Forrest, 38, was a professional
    boxer. His girlfriend's young son was in the car at the time of the
    shooting. Family members are flying in from Texas to pick up the
    child, Lt. Meadows said. He is in police custody and is unharmed.

    Forrest, who lived in Atlanta, was a member of the 1992 U.S. Olympic
    team in Barcelona, Spain. He was best known for two WBC welterweight
    wins against Sugar Shane Mosley in 2002. Forrest, nicknamed the Viper,
    beat Sergio Mora for the WBC junior middleweight title in September.

    The Augusta, Ga. native was stripped of his WBC belt in May because of
    a rib injury. He was supposed to fight Sergio Martinez on August 1st.
    His career record was 41-3 with 29 knockouts.

    Oh that's funny, here's a thread which will turn into "How to profit from a dead celeb" and you're going to knock me because I pointed out that not many people will be as interested in this guy's death for profit?

    You really could say this just about everyday for example John Hughes died today. I'm sure another celeb will die tomorrow there are just to many "celebrities" in the world
