Ex-boxer gets probation for fatal shooting after bus dispute

CLEVELAND (AP) A former professional boxer who once fought heavyweight Mike Tyson has received probation after a fatal shooting that happened when bus passengers in Cleveland challenged him to a fistfight and then followed him off the bus.

Sixty-three-year-old Abdul Rahman was sentenced Wednesday in Cleveland after pleading guilty last month to having a weapon as a convicted felon.

Authorities say Rahman shot 39-year-old bus passenger Andrew Easley in July after a dispute on a Greater Cleveland Regional Transit Authority bus.
