Colombian player shoots fan?

Soccer in that South American country doesn't have the best reputation.

A) Having a national team player murdered after an own-goal gaff in the '94 World Cup, B) Recently a club team coach quit after receiving death threats, C) Most recently a player, Javier Florez, is under investigation for allegedly shooting and killing a heckling fan.

Yeah, seriously.
The dead man was named as Israel Cantillo Escamilla, who was reported to have been among several fans who taunted Florez after a key loss against Once Caldas in the Colombia soccer league.
Note to self, avoid all these soccer in Columbia.

Or maybe just avoid Columbia altogether...
