San Lorenzo - Boca match suspended after deadly shootout

A pre-season friendly scheduled to take place between San Lorenzo and Boca Juniors has been suspended, after violent sections of the Boca support exchanged gunshots in a clash that has left at least two fans dead.

Hours before kick-off, members of the Doce hooligan group fought amongst each other, with witnesses reporting that more than 30 shots were heard.

It was later confirmed that an unnamed individual had been pronounced dead after being hit in the throat, while several others were treated for gunshot injuries. Following the clash, which took place on the outskirts of San Lorenzo's Nuevo Gasometro stadium in Bajo Flores, the decision was made to suspend the friendly.

San Lorenzo and Boca were set to play what was effectively the final of their triangular winter tournament, after both sides beat Estudiantes in their opening matches.
