Lionel Messi Brother’s Home in Argentina Shot At


An international soccer star got a scare on Monday when his brother's home was shot at.

Lionel Messi's brother, Matias, had his Rosario, Argentina, home "sprayed with bullets" on Monday, reports the Associated Press.

The police say that the shooter used a small-caliber gun to fire at least six bullets at the home. Other reports say the shooter was riding a motorcycle.

Although Matias and his mother, Celia, were in the house during the shooting, no injuries were reported.

Lionel, the reigning two-time FIFA Player of the Year, was not in his native country of Argentina because he was in Spain playing for FC Barcelona.
