Hooded gunmen on Saturday massacred 14 people at an amateur football match in Honduras's second city, San Pedro Sula, authorities said.

"There were 14 of them at a football field in the Felipe Zelaya housing development; some guys showed up and started firing at them. Ten of them were killed instantly," said police commissioner Leonel Sauceda.

Four more shooting victims were rushed to Mario Catarino Rivas Hospital in San Pedro Sula, but died there shortly after arriving, Sauceda added.

Another police spokesman in San Pedro Sula, Juan Lopez, said five to eight hooded assailants came out of the risers and opened fire on the 14.
