Mayweather's bodyguard is reportedly doing OK after the shooting.
New details have emerged regarding an Atlanta area shooting in which Floyd Mayweather and members of his entourage were targeted, and one of Mayweather's bodyguards was shot.
According to TMZ Sports, the shooting took place outside of the Intercontinental hotel in Buckhead Atlanta at around 3am on April 9, just as a vehicle carrying the retired boxer entered the valet area of the hotel. The report states, "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."
According to the police report obtained by TMZ Sports, police recovered 12 shell casings at the crime scene, located right next to the hotel where Floyd was staying. Eight of the bullets struck the vehicle that was transporting Floyd's hulking bodyguard Greg La Rosa, who was shot in the leg during the chaotic scene.
"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."
TMZ reports that a total of six people were in the vehicle with La Rosa, but he was the only one who was hit. He has reportedly been released from the hospital and is at home recovering. The shooter is still at large.
