Panama international Amilcar Henriquez has been shot and killed in the country’s Colon province.
The Saturday killing was confirmed by Didacio Camargo, press chief for Panama’s National Police.
Authorities say Henriquez, 33, was leaving his home when he was shot several times. Another two people were injured in the attack and are now in hospital.
Henriquez was taken to a nearby public hospital, where he died.
President Juan Carlos Varela condemned the killing on his Twitter account and called for authorities in Colon to hunt down those responsible.
Henriquez was a member of Panama’s squad for recent World Cup Qualifiers and played the last 20 minutes of their 1-1 draw with the United States in March.
