ATLANTA (AP) -- Atlanta police say a third man has been arrested in the robbery and shooting death of former boxing champion Vernon Forrest.
Police say 30-year-old Charmon Sinkfield was arrested Wednesday night by the U.S. Marshals Service Southeast Regional Fugitive Task Force. Atlanta Police spokesman Eric Schwartz says Sinkfield was apprehended in a traffic stop on Interstate 20 and was taken to the Fulton County jail.
The 38-year-old Forrest was shot to death on July 25 after he chased a man who robbed him of his championship ring and Rolex watch.
Two other men have been arrested in the case, but police believe neither of them shot Forrest.
