Police said that at least 6 9mm shots were fired onto the home of Matías Messi, this past Saturday in Rosario, Argentina.

Reports indicate that the gunfire came from thugs on a motorcycle, who simply rode away after emptying a clip onto the property, and the house next door.

Four bullet casings were found in the front lawn, two in the garage, and the rest of the shot impacts hit the neighbor’s home.

At the time of the attack, the striker’s brother, as well as his mother were inside the house, though nobody was hurt.

No arrests have been made at this time.
