‘We’re waiting for you’: Gunmen threaten Messi in attack on in-laws’ supermarket

Unknown assailants targeted the Argentina football star Messi and his in-laws on the supermarket

On Thursday morning, gunmen opened fire at a supermarket owned by Lionel Messi’s in-laws in his hometown of Rosario, Argentina. Although nobody was injured in the attack, the incident left significant damage to the store.

The motive for the attack is still unclear, and it is unknown why the assailants targeted the Argentina football star or the supermarket, which is owned by the family of Messi’s wife, Antonella Roccuzzo.

According to police reports, two individuals on a motorbike were seen fleeing the scene after leaving a threatening message for Messi. The note, written on a piece of cardboard, read: “Messi, we are waiting for you. Javkin is a drug dealer. He is not going to look after you.” The message refers to Rosario’s mayor, Pablo Javkin, who later spoke out on the incident and called for more police presence in the city, where crime is reportedly on the rise.

The incident occurred in the early hours of Thursday morning, and police were called to the scene after a reported 14 shots were fired at the store’s shutters and front door. Law enforcement authorities in Argentina are investigating the attack.
