Rhoshii Shepperd Wells, a former Clayton County resident who went to the 1996 Olympics as a boxer and came away with a bronze medal, who was once a junior middle weight contender, ending his career with a record of 18-2-2, with 10 knock outs, and was always trying and failing to come-back big, who was compared, by a friend, to a "shining star that never got to shine," was shot to death on Monday in Las Vegas, at the age of 31.

May he rest in peace.
