The bodyguard of boxer Floyd Mayweather was shot early Monday morning as they were returning to the hotel from a club.
Police believe that Floyd was in one of the SUVs that was on the way to the hotel, but unclear if he was the specific target of the attack. Floyd was untouched in the attack.
Cops says, “Another vehicle pulled up beside them at the intersection of Peachtree Road and Highland Drive and fired several times at one of the vehicles. All three vehicles fled and reported being followed for a distance.”
“After losing the vehicle that was following them, the victim’s vehicle drove to Grady Hospital where the victim was treated for a gunshot wound to the leg and is in stable condition.”
“At this time, it appears that this was not a random shooting and the shooter was targeting the victim’s vehicle.”
“The victim advised that he is a bodyguard for Floyd Mayweather.”
