Peruvian match to resume after gun shots outside stadium

September 17, 2018

LIMA, Peru (AP) — A Peruvian soccer league match will resume Monday after being suspended a day earlier because of fighting between fans of the same team.

The country’s soccer association says the last 25 minutes of the match between Alianza Lima and Sporting Cristal will be played behind closed doors.

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.
