Colombian international striker Elson Becerra has died after a shooting in a nightclub in Cartagena de Indias.
Striker Becerra was gunned down on the dance floor
Becerra, who played his club football with UAE side Al Jazeera, was shot four times while dancing in the club and was pronounced dead at the Vargas Hospital.
The 27-year-old was part of Colombia's triumphant squads in the 2001 Copa America and 2003 Confederations Cup.
He was also part of the squad that failed to reach this year's World Cup finals in Germany.
In 2004, Albeiro Usuriaga, who helped Colombia qualify for the 1990 World Cup in Italy, was shot and killed when several gunmen opened fire in a nightclub in Cali.
After the 1994 World Cup, Andres Escobar was shot dead outside a Colombian bar - days after scoring an own goal in the first round against the United States.
