This hasn't been a great weekend for order in the soccer world. A day after a Brazilian soccer fan died after getting struck in the head by a toilet bowl, the Coppa Italia final got delayed because of gunshots erupting outside of Stadio Olimpico.
Three Napoli fans were shot at the Tor di Quinto area. The fans and the rivaling Fiorentina supporters were throwing firecrackers and other objects at each other. The three victims were rushed to the hospital—two shot in the arm and one in critical condition after getting shot in the chest. Six people were injured in the pre-match conflicts.
The Napoli fans didn't want to continue with the match until they got confirmation their supporters had not been killed. The final was scheduled to start at 3 PM, but it eventually got underway after a lengthy delay.
