Peruvian match resumes after gun shots outside stadium
LIMA, Peru (AP) A Peruvian soccer league match resumed on Monday after being suspended a day earlier because of fighting between fans of the same team.
The country’s soccer association said the last 25 minutes of the match between Alianza Lima and Sporting Cristal would be played behind closed doors.
Por normas de la Policía Nacional del Perú, el partido se suspende con 25 minutos pendientes para terminarlo. El tiempo restante del encuentro se jugará el día de mañana.— Club Alianza Lima (@ClubALoficial) September 16, 2018
Sporting Cristal was leading 2-1 Sunday when the match was suspended. Four people were wounded by gunshots outside the stadium during the match.
Peruvian Interior Minister Mauro Medina says the incident happened after rival groups of Alianza Lima fans clashed with each other. Police used tear gas to stop the fight.
