A referee was shot dead by a player shortly after giving the player a red card.
The murder took place in Campo de la Ribera on Sunday, Feb. 13, in Cordoba, Argentina.
Ref César Flores, 48, sent a player off the pitch with the red card.
But the player retrieved a gun from his bag and shot the referee three times.
“It all happened during the football match. We don’t know [exactly what took place], but it appears the player was angry, fetched a gun and killed him,” a police source told Efe news, according to the Guardian.
Another player, 25-year-old Walter Zarate, was also shot but is recovering in the hospital.
Police are still searching for the unnamed player.
