Here’s The Unsettling Video Of Gunshots Interrupting A Soccer Match
Sadly, the violent incidents outside (and at) the 49ers-Raiders preseason NFL game weren't the only instances of violence at a sporting event this weekend. On Saturday, a soccer match in Mexico between Santos and Monarcas had to be suspended after gunshots were heard outside the stadium. There's video of the scene as it unfolded. Here's how it looked:
This story quotes a broadcaster as saying the shots "sounded like fireworks, at first," and...yeah, we'd agree. Makes it all the smarter on the players' part that they didn't react like it was fireworks: they got right out of there. The stadium was then (understandably) put on lockdown, and everyone tried to take cover. The shots themselves? Those, reportedly, were the "result of an attack on police officers outside the stadium." We really hope we're done writing about incidents like this.
