It appears that the guy was hit by a stray bullet and wasn't targeted. These arabs need to stop celebrating with guns.
An Iraqi footballer was killed by a stray bullet on Sunday when one of his team's supporters fired off several rounds to celebrate their victory, police said.
The game had just ended in a 1-0 home win for Annana over Sinjar, neighbouring village teams west of Hilla city, police lieutenant Ali al-Khafaji told AFP.
"A stray bullet hit Annana player Haider Hakem in the chest and he died," Khafaji said.
Police arrested the suspected killer from Annana, a rural settlement about 10 kilometres (six miles) from Hilla, some 120 kilometres (75 miles) south of Baghdad.
Fans often launch into a blaze of triumphal gunfire in Iraq when major league teams clash.
