ATLANTA (AP) — Authorities say a second man has been arrested in connection to the death of a former boxing champion.

News media outlets report that Quantavis Robinson was arrested Thursday in the shooting death of 40-year-old O'Neil Bell last month. Last week, 18-year-old Tycorion Davis was arrested.

Atlanta police said Bell and another person, whose name has not been released, were shot while getting off a bus before two suspects robbed them. Bell was pronounced dead at the scene in southwest Atlanta.

Bell had held four different titles during his 13-year boxing career, including the WBA, WBC, and IBF cruiserweight titles. In his last match, Bell beat Rico Cason with a technical knockout in the first round in 2011. Bell finished his boxing career with a 27-4-1 record.
