GUATEMALA CITY — Authorities say a gunfight broke out between rival gangs at a soccer field in a suburb of Guatemala City, killing four people and wounding 13.

National police spokesman Donald Gonzalez says the attackers opened fire on rival gang members as they watched a pickup game in Ciudad Real Thursday night.

Among the 14 people who were injured was a 10-year-old girl, as well as participants of the game.

All the victims of the gunfight were taken to Roosevelt Hospital, some still wearing uniforms. Four died shortly after arrival.

Gang activity is common in the suburbs of Guatemala City.
