Former Olympic boxer shot in OTR

A former Olympic boxer and Cincinnati native is recovering from a gunshot wound.

Police say Ron Siler Jr., 31, was shot during a robbery in Over-the-Rhine Monday morning. Siler was shot in the arm at the corner of Green and Race streets. His injuries are non-life-threatening.

So far, police are still looking for the suspect.

Siler was shot almost exactly two years ago in the leg in OTR. He has several drug arrests on his record.

Siler was the captain for the U.S. Boxing Team in the 2004 Olympics in Athens, Greece.
