GUATEMALA CITY (AP) - The vice president of a last-place soccer
team in Guatemala has been shot to death after receiving threats
about the club's poor play.
National Civil Police spokesman Donald Gonzalez said Saturday no
suspects have been detained in the killing of Carlos Noe Gomez.
Gonzalez said the club executive was killed late Friday as he left
a team meeting in the northern province of Huehuetenango.
Prosecutor Nery Martinez says the investigation is focused on
the threats Gomez reported receiving several weeks ago.
Deportivo Xinabajul is last in the country's national league and
lost 2-0 at home this week to Suchitepequez.
