Cousin of Man United star Marcos Rojo shot dead in 'botched armed robbery'

GOSSIP & RUMOURS By Game Yetu | March 7th 2017

Manchester United star Marcos Rojo's cousin has been shot dead in Argentina by an ex-police officer he was allegedly trying to rob at gunpoint.

Seventeen-year-old Geronimo Rojo died in hospital hours early Monday morning after reportedly trying to hold up the retired police officer with an accomplice who was also shot dead.

The duo are said to have targeted 50-year-old Raul Anibal Diaz, who identified himself before opening fire, fatally injuring the two men.

Argentine newspaper Hoy, which identified the younger victim as Rojo’s cousin, published distressing pictures of the teenager and the dead man lying on the ground next to their motorbike.
