A man identifying himself as a bodyguard for professional boxer Floyd Mayweather was shot and then followed after pulling up to an upscale Buckhead hotel with two other vehicles.


“We believe that Mr. Mayweather may have been in one of the other vehicles in the caravan and was not injured,” Atlanta police spokesman Donald Hannah confirmed.


Several officers responded to the scene at the InterContinental Buckhead Atlanta just after 3 a.m. Monday in the 3300 block of Peachtree Road.


“At this time, it appears that this was not a random shooting and the shooter was targeting the victim’s vehicle,” Hannah said.

According to Atlanta police, three vehicles were returning to the hotel from a club on Buford Highway when another vehicle pulled alongside them and started firing several times at a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van.

Do you think that if we watched this shooting in slow motion that Floyd would have only been an inch or 2 from being shot?
