Videos posted on social media showed one youth bleeding profusely and the San Juan de Dios Hospital reported treating a person who had been shot during the clashes outside the Doroteo Guamuch Flores stadium.

Monroy said all of those arrested are Honduran fans.

The match was part of a tournament to qualify for the CONCACAF club championship. It ended 2-2 after two Olimpia players were sent off with red cards — former Houston Dynamo player Boniek García and Jerry Bengston, formerly of the New England Revolution.
