BOGOTA, COLOMBIA (AP) - Colombian police say one man was shot dead and nine people were wounded in knife attacks involving rival fans after a game.

Police reported 315 arrests and confiscated more than 450 knives after Independiente’s 2-1 win over Atletico Nacional on Sunday.

The man who died was identified Monday as 21-year-old Johan Camilo Restrepo. Medellin police chief Yesid Vasquez says he was shot while trying to take a bag from a 17-year-old girl.

Both sets of fans attacked police with clubs and damaged homes and businesses near the stadium.
