During an early-morning attack on a shop in Lionel Messi’s hometown of Rosario, Argentina, on March 2, unknown gunmen left a note threatening the football star.
14 shots were reportedly fired at the doors of Rosario’s “Unico” grocery store before two suspects rode away on a motorcycle, according to reports coming out of Argentina.
The shop is owned by the Rosario-born family of Messi’s wife, Antonela Roccuzzo.
Nobody was injured in the attack, which caused significant damage to the shop. But, a piece of cardboard with the words “Messi, we are waiting for you” was left at the scene. Javkin is a drug dealer. He is not going to look after you.”
Rosario’s mayor is Pablo Javkin.
After the attack on Thursday, Javkin demanded that Rosario be given additional resources to help safeguard and provide for its citizens.
“Rosario is only 300 kilometers away from Buenos Aires.
“In order to defend this metropolis that brings fame and science to the nation, as well as the countryside and the arts, federalism, and union, we want to access all of Argentina’s resources against crime.”
