Mayweather Boxing Prodigy Danny Gonzalez, Suspects Arrested for 1st-Degree Murder
Two men suspected of murdering Floyd Mayweather boxing prodigy Danny Gonzalez have been arrested, TMZ Sports has confirmed … and cops say they’re still on the hunt for a 3rd suspect.
Both 27-year-old Andre Richee and 32-year-old Lee Mooring were arrested Thursday for 1st-degree murder stemming from the Sept. 7 incident.
The Riverside County Sheriff’s Office also says it’s issued an arrest warrant for 28-year-old Joseph Goldsmith over his alleged involvement in the shooting as well.
As we previously reported … 22-year-old Gonzalez — who signed with Mayweather’s The Money Team in 2016 — was shot on Labor Day in Moreno Valley, Calif., just before 9 PM.
Cops say when they responded to the scene … Gonzalez succumbed to his bullet wound injuries. They say two other men were also injured by gunfire in the incident.
What’s still unclear … why Gonzalez was killed? Officials have not revealed a possible motive.
Investigators say they not only spoke with multiple witnesses but also have evidence and surveillance footage pointing to Richee and Mooring as the killers.
If convicted of 1st-degree murder, both could face the death penalty.
The RCSO is now asking for help in finding Goldsmith.
Floyd was convinced Gonzalez was going to be a star after he signed with TMT Promotions when he was only 18 years old … with Mayweather saying, “There are certain times when you know you’ve just struck gold and this is one of them.”
Danny took 3 pro fights after signing with Floyd … but eventually left the sport in 2017.
Social media posts from Gonzalez suggested a comeback to boxing could have been in the works before his tragic death.
