TORONTO (Reuters) - An American player in the Canadian Football League (CFL) was killed in an early morning shooting outside a nightclub in the western city of Calgary, the gaming body said on Sunday.
The CFL identified the player as Mylan Hicks, 23, of the Calgary Stampeders in the province of Alberta.
Local police said officers found a man in his 20s who had been shot at about 2:30 a.m.
"He was transported to hospital in life-threatening condition but has since succumbed to his injuries," the Calgary Police Service said in a statement.
