Two men opened fire in the middle of the night on a closed supermarket owned by Lionel Messi’s wife’s family. They then left a threat on the ground directed at the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner.
We’re waiting for you, Messi. The handwritten note that was left on the ground by the individuals who fired 14 bullets into the supermarket’s aluminum exterior early on Thursday morning read: “Javkin is a narco, he won’t take care of you.
The supermarket is situated in Messi’s hometown of Rosario, some 320 kilometers northwest of Buenos Aires, and Pablo Javkin is the mayor of that city.
Javkin stated the attack’s goal was to “cause commotion in the city” and that the grocery belonged to Antonela Roccuzzo’s family, who has three kids with the football star.
The consequences are sought here, which is perfidious, he said. What news item spreads around the globe more fast than a criticism of Messi?

A witness attested to seeing the two males ride up on a motorcycle just before three o’clock. They both left when one of them got off, fired the bullets, and dropped the letter.
