RIP Vernon Forrest

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.
