The soccer player, 29, was at the bar with friends and family when he was attacked and shot in the head.
“He was shot in the head,” prosecutor Miguel Angel Mancera, told the news channel Televisa. “
“We don’t clearly know the motive behind the injury … The player is conscious but he has a heart problem which they’re trying to stabilize.
“We’re waiting to see what those arrested have to say. It seems that the attack happened in the bathroom of the bar.”
Cabanas was undergoing surgery to remove the bullet from his head.
“He arrived conscious and responded well to the questions they asked him as he was going into hospital,” Bauer told Televisa. “It’s a key point that can be encouraging, but until further notice we cannot speculate on anything at all. “They wanted to assault him. I can confirm that that is what his wife has said, that it was an assault. There was no shoot-out nor any quarrel.”
Cabanas was expected to be in the World Cup in South Africa.
Two men were arrested for the shooting.
