They were allegedly lined up with another group of guardians before being separated by the bouncer.
But the other group later returned to a car and fired several shots, a police source said.
A former Beatriz Olympic player who accompanied Mr Armburo but wanted to remain anonymous said: “There was a dispute, as it could be done later in the evening.
“There was talk but people returned and opened fire on Mr Arborough, who received three bullets.
