Santos Laguna and Monarcas Morelia were prepared to play a soccer game on Sunday in Estadio Corona Territorio Santos Modelo. With over 12 thousand fans supporting the teams, frustration was high with the 0-0 score. In the 40th minute, everything changed as terror set in when shooting started. Immediately, the players left the field, everyone was running, children were crying and nobody could understand what was happening.
Thousands of others watched the game on TV or listened on radio, had also witnessed the shooting live. This is something historical and never before seen at a game of soccer. The commentators could not believe what was happening as chaos broke out.
