The rash of deaths among sports celebs takes yet another shot… literally. ---

Former boxing Light Middleweight Champion Vernon Forrest was shot and killed in Atlanta on Saturday in what police are calling an attempted robbery. No suspects have been arrested Forrest had stopped at a gas station to put air in his car tires when a man asked him for money. When he pulled his wallet out, the man snatched it and started running, and Forrest took off after him. He turned around to go back to the car and the man shot him several times in the back.

Earlier this month boxer Arturo Gatti and NFL QB Steve McNair were both killed as well as boxer Alexis Arguello who apparently committed suicide.
