RIP Vernon Forrest

by

Former world champion Vernon Forrest was shot to death in Atlanta, GA last night in an attempted carjacking. While putting air in the tires of his Jaguar, 2 men pulled up beside him in a red Monte Carlo, attempting to steal the car. They apparently did not know two things: there was a child in the car, and Forrest was armed. A foot chase resulted in shots being fired by everyone involved, with Forrest being shot 7 or 8 times, including at least once in the head. The child was unharmed. Forrest was 38 years old.
