Tottenham’s defender Serge Aurier’s brother Christopher has been killed in a shooting battle in France, a country of his residence.
A rescue mission from fire service arrived the scene in Toulouse at around 5:00 am local time but couldn’t help as Christopher died in the hospital after sustaining an injury on the abdomen.
Gun sounds were heard and reports suggests the gunman has fled having heard the fire service arriving.
The 26-year old is a younger brother to Tottenham Defender Serge who played in the club’s North London derby win against rivals Arsenal yesterday.
Christopher is a professional footballer who passed through the youth ranks at Lens alongside his brother Serge, but until his death played for fifth- division team Toulouse Rodeo in France
