Soccer Team President Gunned Down in Ecuador

QUITO – The president of Ecuador’s Delfin Sporting Club soccer team was gunned down and a female companion was wounded in the coastal city of Manta, the press reported.

Honorio Cevallos was speaking with coach Juan Carlos Bedolla at a restaurant on Saturday when a man shot him several times.

Some reports say two men were involved in the killing and fled in an automobile.

Cevallos was taken to Clinica San Gregorio, which he co-owned, and died while being treated by doctors.

Two women were with Cevallos, who also owned fishing businesses, the El Comercio newspaper reported.

One of the women, identified as Gina Saldarriaga, was apparently shot three times and is hospitalized, but the severity of her wounds is not known.

Ecuador has experienced a surge in killings carried out by professional assassins recently.

There has been almost no progress in dealing with crime in the past four years, President Rafael Correa said Saturday.

Delfin Sporting Club will be competing for the provincial championship over the next few months in an effort to join Division B of the Ecuadorian soccer league.
