Vernon Forrest was killed last Saturday in what is being called an attempted robbery.
Vernon Forrest was at a gas station putting at air in his car tires when some man came up and asked him for some money. When he pulled out his wallet to generously give the man a few dollars, he took it and started running, and Vernon was chasing after him. The dude had turned the corner and Vernon didn’t see where he went. When he turned around to come back to his car, shots were then fired. He had multiple gunshots to his legs and upper torso. This all happened while the son of his girlfriend was in the backseat of his car. He didn’t see the shooting but he was able to describe a suspect. Currently police are seeking to guys who fled in a red Monte Carlo. He a had a 41-3 pro record with 29 knockouts. he was really a force to be reckoned with.
