A boxer was the victim of a targeted shooting in Baltimore on Monday night, Anne Arundel County Police announced in a press release. 

Isaiah Oludayo Olugbemi, a 27-year-old promising boxer, was found with multiple gunshot wounds around 9:45 p.m. on Meadowmist Way at Stehlik Drive by authorities. 

Olugbemi was rushed to Shock Trauma in Baltimore, but he passed away from injuries there. 

Authorities believe this was not a random shooting, though the investigation is still ongoing. 

There have been no suspects arrested in connection with the shooting. Investigators are urging neighbors to help them with the investigation by allowing access to private surveillance and doorbell cameras.
