Report: Cousin of AC Milan's Ronaldo shot to death in Brazil

A cousin of AC Milan striker Ronaldo was among three people killed in a drive-by shooting in Rio de Janeiro, local media reported Sunday.
Igor Nazario de Lima, 23, and two other young men were shot to death while chatting in front of a drug store in the city's north side late Saturday night, authorities told the Agencia Estado news service and other local media.
Lima worked as a delivery man at the drugstore, local media said.
Ronaldo, who is in Brazil to treat an injury, has not commented on the report.
Police said they had not arrested or identified the suspects. It also wasn't clear whether the assailants knew Ronaldo's cousin was at the drug store.
A fourth man was shot but his injuries were not life threatening, local media reported.
Rio de Janeiro is one of the most violent cities in the world, with a homicide rate of about 50 per 100,000 people.
