Soccer referee shot dead by a player after calling a red card in Argentina

Soccer Referee with Red Card

Argentinian police confirmed Tuesday that referee Cesar Flores was shot and killed during a match by a player he gave a red card, according to Daily Mirror. The attacker is still at large.

The player was reportedly sent off after sending a player to the floor. He then retreated to his backpack, drew a gun and shot the official three times -- in the head, chest and neck. It's also alleged that he shot a 25-year-old player in the chest, who lived.

"It all happened during the match. We don't know what happened with the referee, but the player was angry and went to get his gun and killed him," Argentinian police said through a report.

Flores was 48 years old.
