Former Burton Albion footballer Kelvin Maynard has been shot dead in Amsterdam by two men riding a motorbike, police said.
The 32-year-old defender was gunned down in his car after being chased by armed men on motorbikes in the Langbroekdreef area of the city last night.
Dutch police are appealing for witnesses in the hunt for two suspects who Dutch authorities say escaped on a black scooter.
Maynard was trying to flee the gunmen by driving towards a nearby fire station, but he crashed into the building.
Witnesses say the defender tried to get away but got caught by a hail of bullets from his attackers, according to De Telegraaf.
