Iraqi player murdered during game

This might be the most messed up story I've ever read.

An Iraqi soccer player was racing down the field to score an equalizing goal in the last minute of a highly-contested game between two rivals...

...but then he was shot and killed by a fan.
The striker was shot in the head during the match in the city of Hilla, according to local security officials.

The game was being played between Sinjar and Buhayra. The suspected killer has been arrested as police carry out an investigation.
Holy god. That's horrible.
