Footballer shot dead in Russia

A youth player for Russian club Anzhi Makhachkala was shot dead in
Russia’s North Caucasus in the early hours of Sunday morning.

Gasan Magomedov was driving towards his family’s home when his
vehicle came under attack from a “volley of automatic gunfire,”
according to a statement on the clubs website.

The 20-year-old’s parents heard the gunfire and rushed to discover their wounded son who died on his way to hospital.

The club added that the local police have yet to determine any motives or suspects.

The attack took place in Dagestan, a region of Russia that has
recently become the focus of Islamist insurgency. For years, Anzhi’s
leading players lived and trained in Moscow and only went to Dagestan
for home games.
