Panama international footballer dies after being gunned down leaving his home
Panama international footballer Amilcar Henriquez has been shot and killed in the country's Colon province.
The 33-year-old midfielder was leaving his home on Saturday when a gunman shot him several times.
Two other people were wounded, and Henriquez was taken to a nearby hospital, where he died.
President Juan Carlos Varela condemned the killing on his Twitter account and called for the authorities in Colon to hunt down those responsible.
Henriquez was a member of Panama's national team which is participating in qualifying rounds for the 2018 World Cup in Russia.
He played in the last 20 minutes of a recent game in Panama with the United States which ended in a 1-1 draw.
