Nedd scuffled with one of the intruders, and was shot. He later succumbed to his wounds, after being transported to the hospital.
His training partner,at Bojan Kladnjakovic, told the Tononto Star that Nedd "died a hero". He went on:
Nedd planned to make his pro debut either next month in Gananoque or in June at Mississauga’s Hershey Centre.
“He was just so helpful all the time....This time it cost him his life. He always stuck up for people who couldn’t defend themselves.”
