Police were looking for the man who shot a three-time Golden Gloves champion early Saturday in The Bronx.
Ronney Vargas was gunned down about 3:30 a.m. Saturday after an argument with a group of men who fled the scene in a white car. It happened around 3:30 a.m. outside a bodega in the East Tremont section.
Detectives thought the fatal dispute might have been over a woman.
Police said the 20-year-old Vargas was shot once in the torso. The young boxer was pronounced dead at the hospital.
No arrests were made.
Vargas, a junior middleweight, attended Bronx Regional High School before turning pro in June 2007. He won each of his eight fights.
