PANAMA CITY (AP) — Panamanian authorities say they've arrested seven people in the slaying of national soccer team midfielder Amilcar Henriquez.

The prosecutor's office says the suspects were arrested in the Colon region on the country's Atlantic coast, where Henriquez was shot to death on Saturday. Three of them are reported to be minors.

Sunday's prosecution statement doesn't suggest a motive for the killing, but there's no evidence that a robbery was involved.

Authorities say a gunman shot the 33-year-old Henriquez several times, killing at least one other person and wounding a third.

Henriquez had been playing for Panama in World Cup qualifiers and for the local team Arabe Unido.
