Former boxing champion Vernon Forrest was shot and killed in Atlanta yesterday in an attempted robbery and carjacking.

Forrest, who was 38, was an Atlanta native. He was shot seven or eight times as he chased at least two men who had tried to steal his Jaguar as he put air in his tires at an Atlanta gas station.

The 38-year-old beat Sugar Shane Mosley in 2002. On Sept. 13, 2008, Forrest reclaimed his WBC 154-pound title by beating Sergio Mora.
