The attack occurred in the context of a fight between “La Famosa Banda” and “Somos familia”, two factions of the “funebrero” brava group.
The Agency for the Prevention of Violence in Sports (Aprevide), headed by Guillermo Cimadevila, and the Buenos Aires Ministry of Security, indicated that “they continue to collaborate with Justice by providing all the images to the Functional Instruction Unit number 5 of San Martín to the search for others involved in the incident.”
Cimadevila asked the directors of Chacarita Juniors for “a comprehensive report on what happened, due to compliance with the safety guidelines of the sporting event.”

“Among other issues, in addition, the sports entity was consulted about what types of measures it will adopt due to the events that have arisen so that in the future the circumstances of public knowledge are not reiterated,” indicated the Aprevide statement.
The investigation of the case labeled “aggravated homicide” by the Sports Entertainment Law was carried out by prosecutor Gabriela Disnan, who is in charge of UFI number 5 of San Martín.
A Chacarita Juniors fan who had attended the team's debut in the Primera Nacional died at the Manuel Belgrano General Provincial Hospital in the Buenos Aires town of San Martín.
What did the Chacarita fan die from?
Spokesmen for the Buenos Aires Police indicated that Jorge Daniel Durán, 43, was taken by ambulance to the hospital, but they were unable to stabilize him and he died.
According to what could be reconstructed, the confrontation began at 5:45 p.m. in the popular gallery and the fight continued outside the state, where “they fought with fists,” until one of those involved used a knife to stab Durán in the chest.
