Police say referee showed the player a red card for making a heavy tackle on an opponent. The assailant, who is at large, rushed to his bag and returned with a gun and shot Flores three times killing him.
He also wounded another player, 25-year-old Walter Zarate, before fleeing the scene, as everyone scampered for safety. "It all happened during the match," a police spokesman said.
