Football manager shot dead - in UK
A masked man lay in wait for a footballer to arrive at a training session before gunning him down in front of his horrified team-mates, police said today.
The gunman, wearing a mask and ski-goggles, hid in the bushes before emerging to shoot dead Ryan Musgrove, 36, as he arrived ready for the practice.
Mr Musgrove, an electrician, was shot more than six times in the attack at the Sparrow Den playing fields in West Wickham, South-East London, last night.
He died at the scene despite frantic attempts from his team-mates at the Coney Hall Football Club and passers-by to save him. His killer escaped on a mountain bike.
I am shocked each time some one is murdered in such a fashion in a country that has strict weapons control. This seems to be a contract killing or a mad man annoyed that his team is not doing very well?
