Arrested for Killing MMA Fighter

MMA - Illustration from Wikipedia
A teenager has been arrested for taking part in a failed robbery where a 28-year-old promising MMA fighter was shot and killed in April 2011.

The incident reportedly occurred at a banquet hall in Ontario, Canada. The arrested boy, who was 14 at the time, was allegedly at the scene together with another man, aged 30.

Here's an excerpt of what citytv.com recently said about the matter:
A 15-year-old boy has been charged with second-degree murder in the death of an up-and-coming mixed-martial arts fighter at a Brampton banquet hall last April.
Kearn Nedd, 28, was shot after he stepped in to help the organizer of a poker tournament when two armed and masked men burst into the Rozz Banquet Hall on Advance Boulevard, near Dixie Road and Steeles, on April 16, 2011. 
Sad to see a Good Samaritan like Mr Nedd here suffer the terrible consequences for stepping up. It might also serve as a warning about the danger of fighting people armed with guns.

Would be interesting to hear your opinion about the matter. Feel free to comment.
