Police say that 52 year-old retired boxer Tony Martin was shot and killed during an argument with a visitor at one of his rental properties in Philadelphia.

CBS Sports report:
“The 52-year-old Martin, a former welterweight, was shot during an argument at the home in the city’s Hunting Park section on Friday, police said. Martin’s niece, Robyn Peete, said her uncle had gone to the home to collect rent and found a person who wasn’t supposed to be there.Peete said she didn’t know exactly what happened, but that her uncle was a strict landlord who owned several properties in the city. He may not have approved of an unauthorized person being at the property, she said, adding that he was also known to be very compassionate with his tenants.”He was a very good landlord as far as giving breaks to his tenants,” she said. “It’s just a matter of time before the person is identified and apprehended.”

RIP Tony Martin
