FORMER AJAX footballer Jerge Hoefdraad has tragically died aged 35.
Dutch outlet De Telegraaf claim the ex-winger passed away after he was shot in the head while trying to break up an argument at a party.
The report adds that Hoefdraad was rushed to the hospital for emergency surgery on Sunday but he sadly died earlier today.
Police are said to have identified the prime suspect, although no arrests have been made as of yet.
Hoefdraad, who spent time as a youth player at Eredivisie giants Ajax, also turned out for domestic sides RKC Waalwijk, Almere City, and Telstar.
Ex-Liverpool star Ryan Babel let the tributes on social media as he took to Twitter to share his sadness at his compatriot's death.
