Colombian Soccer Player Kills a Fan Who Blamed Him for Losing Title

BOGOTA – Colombian midfielder for Atletico Junior Javier Florez on Sunday killed a young man who, apparently – along with a group of other people – blamed him for losing the title in the Apertura tournament against Once Caldas.

“The young men shouted at him ‘weak, weak’ and he (Florez) turned around, took a gun and shot,” said a witness to the incident, which occurred in a southern neighborhood in the Caribbean coastal city of Barranquilla.

Atletico Junior played the final match of the Apertura tourney against Once Caldas and lost both the away game 2-1, as well as the home game 1-3, which occurred last Sunday.

Florez fired two shots at electrician Israel Campillo, 27, said authorities.

The player fled the scene on foot and the furious crowd pelted his automobile with stones and other objects, destroying it.

Florez is being sought by police across a large section of Barranquilla.
