Who is Nicholas Giroux? Suspect Charged in Fatal Shooting of Boxer Isaiah Olugbemi

Nicholas Francis Xavier Giroux has been arrested and charged with first and second-degree murder in connection with a shooting that killed a popular Odenton amateur boxer.

Isaiah Oludayo Olugbemi was found suffering from gunshot wounds after authorities were called to the area of Meadowmist Way and Stehlik Drive in Odenton in regards to a shooting on Monday.

He was administered life-saving measures and later transported to the University of Maryland R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, where he was pronounced deceased.

Late Tuesday, police arrested a suspect in the shooting and charged him with murder.

Police said that residents heard several shots outside their homes, and investigators said preliminary information indicates there may have been a dispute.

“Residents reported hearing multiple gunshots in the area. Officers located the victim, a 27-year-old male, suffering from multiple gunshots, and then he was transported to Baltimore, where he later died at Shock Trauma from his injuries,” Anne Arundel County police spokesman Justin Mulcahy told 11 News in regards to the shooting.

Olugbemi was a three-sport athlete in high school and college, a father, and a boxer with dreams of going pro, according to numerous online tributes.

One popular tribute from Jim Hook read: “Still in shock over the news that my buddy Isaiah Olugbemi passed away last night. He was only 27 years old.

It was only a few weeks ago that he won The National Golden Gloves Championship, a major accomplishment for any amateur fighter. He was planning to turn pro later this year 💔💔

My heart breaks for his young son, who he used to bring to the gym quite often. His son would have the best time as nearly every dude in the gym would take turns chasing him around. It was only a few days ago that I got to hold him up in the air as he did sets of pull ups.

It was great to see Isaiah grow into a leader over the last few years. One random Saturday I pulled into the parking lot, and he was running sprints by himself. He knew that others inside were watching him. He said that he wanted to lead by example, which he certainly did. I started to run sprints due to his example.

I’ll miss his humor, like challenging the young Marines to pull up competitions or reminding me that I was his good luck charm since he never lost a fight where I attended.

When he was finished working out you could hear his laugh pretty much anywhere in the gym.

Most of all I will just miss my friend. As committed as he was to his craft he always found a few minutes to chat.

There weren’t too many days over the last few years where I didn’t get to see him.

Rest easy Champ – you are missed.
