"Charles Watson, the boxer's manager, said police and witnesses told him that Forrest had stopped at a gas station to put air in his car tire when a man approached asking for money.

"Somehow, Vernon had his wallet out and the guy snatched his wallet and started running," Watson said. "Vernon pursued after him. The guy turned the corner and Vernon didn't see him. He turned around to go back to the car. That's when he started firing.""

Convenience stores are a mixed bag. There's been armed undercover cops killed in robberies at convenience stores by us and in another case an armed civilian from Arkansas shot a robber right in the forehead at a convenience store.
