SAN SALVADOR, El Salvador (AP) Authorities in El Salvador say gunmen shot and killed former national soccer team player Alfredo Alberto Pacheco at a gasoline station in a municipality west of the country's capital.

El Salvador's Attorney General's Office and its National Police said unidentified assailants aboard a vehicle approached Pacheco and some of his friends in the city of Santa Ana early Sunday and opened fire. Pacheco was killed, while two people accompanying him were injured.

Pacheco was one of the players on El Salvador's national team who was banned for life by the Salvadoran Soccer Federation in 2013 a punishment ratified by FIFA for match-fixing. He played for the Salvadoran teams FAS, Metapan and Aguila as well as the national selection.

Police did not provide a motive for his killing.
