In a strange fact, a supermarket owned by the family of Antonela Roccuzzo, wife of Lionel Messi, was shot by what appears to be a mafia group from the city of Rosario, in Argentina.
In addition to that, the antisocials left a dangerous threat on the facade of the commercial premises: “Messi, we are waiting for you”. In total there were 14 bullets that hit the place, in addition to the ultimatum they left on the façade.
The store managers told the media that they have not received any warnings from criminal groups in Rosario, the city where Lionel Messi was born and which has suffered violence due to drug trafficking for several years.
“Javkin is also a narco, he will not take care of you”, is the other part of the threat that they left in the supermarket. The authorities suspect that two men on a motorcycle were the perpetrators of the crime.
Violence due to drug trafficking in the city of Rosario reached its peak in 2022 when up to 300 deaths were recorded. With this fact, the captain and world champion Messi is inadvertently involved in this harsh reality.
The Criminal Investigation Agency of Argentina is in the process of collecting more evidence such as the collection of testimonies, ballistic material and a thorough review of surveillance cameras.
