BIOGRAPHY, WIKIPEDIA AND CAUSE OF DEATH: Bahamian Olympic sprinter and former Texas A&M star, Shavez Hart, was tragically shot and killed after allegedly trying to break up a fight outside of a nightclub in the Bahamas on Saturday

Olympic sprinter and former Texas A&M star Shavez Hart was tragically shot and killed after allegedly trying to break up a fight outside of a nightclub in the Bahamas on Saturday. He was only 29 years old.

According to the Royal Bahamas Police, the incident happened in Mount Hope, North Abaco (about 120 miles north of Nassau) around 2 AM.

The shooting took place at roughly 2 a.m. on Saturday in the parking lot of a nightclub in Mount Hope, North Abaco, according to TMZ Sports. Police reported that Hart, a former sprinter for Texas A&M University, was shot in the chest while trying to break up a fight.

He was transported to the Marsh Harbor Clinic, where he was pronounced dead.

The investigation remains ongoing as of Tuesday morning, but an arrest has been made in connection to the case, per TMZ Sports.

Hart's friends and former coaches honored the Olympian after the news broke. His former coach at Texas A&M, Pat Henry, said he was heartbroken over the loss.

"This is so tragic. Shavez Hart was of course one of our finest athletes ever, but he was one of the kindest people I have met, and such a soft-spoken man," Henry said in a statement. "Words can't describe the loss that the Aggie track and field family is feeling. My thoughts and prayers are with his family."

Hart was an eight-time Bahamas national sprint champion, with four wins in both the 100 and 400 meters, and medals in various tournaments including the Pan-Am Under-2 Championships and CAC Championships. In 2016, Hart represented the Bahamas in Rio, Brazil, at the Olympic Games. Also that year, he won the silver medal at the World Indoor Championship in the 4x400 relay competition.

"This is so tragic," Aggie track and field head coach Pat Henry said.

"Shavez Hart was of course one of our finest athletes ever, but he was one of the kindest people I have met, and such a soft-spoken man."

RBPF says a suspect has been arrested and the investigation is ongoing.

RIP.
