arnoldHonduran soccer player Arnold Peralta has been shot dead in his hometown.

He was killed in the parking lot of a shopping centre in La Ceiba, on the country’s Caribbean coast.

It’s being reported that a man on a motorcycle approached Arnold as he was making his way to his car – shot him point blank in the head and sped off.

The motive for the attack is unclear.

Just last year, he complained about violence in his homeland, saying:

“How difficult it is for our country with so many criminals killing every so often, as though killing was in fashion! These types of people don’t deserve to be alive.”

So infuriating. Our condolences to his parents.
