Father shoots coach in public for dropping daughter off basketball team

A Mexican 'drug ballad' singer has been reported to have killed his daughter's basketball coach as revenge for leaving her out of the team.

Angelico Reyes is said to have opened fire on Guillermo Cordero, 33, after being told his daughter could not be in the starting team, not even as a substitute, because she arrived late.

The 11-year-old student had hoped to play a local team at a university court in Oaxaca city, southwest Mexico, but was told to sit out after her family failed to arrive on time.

Reyes appeared to have accepted the decision at the time, but started an angry confrontation with Cordero after the game finished.

Witnesses revealed that they saw him draw his gun and shoot Cordero five times in the chest and abdomen.

Reyes is said  to have fled with his family, and according to the police, Reyes and his family are still on the run.
