A football match in Argentina ended on a  tragic note when a player shot and killed the referee after he showed him a red card for a foul.
The terrible incident occurred in the Cordoba district on Monday as a young player shot the referee just minutes after being issued his marching orders.
The perpetrator also shot another player, 25-year-old Walter Zarate, who has been taken to hospital but is not in critical condition.
Police said the man, who is still at large and being hunted down, had the gun in his backpack and ran on to the pitch as the game was continuing. He shot the referee, 48-year-old Cesar Flores, three times, hitting him in the head, neck and chest.
“It all happened during the match,” said a police spokesman. “We don’t know what happened with the referee but the player was angry and went to get his gun and killed him.”
The attacker was apparently sent off for flooring an opponent during the game before he decided to fatally settle the score.
