Reports state that a gunman opened fire in a Play Del Carmen nightclub early Monday morning. The town is just south of Cancun and was hosting the BPM music festival.
The gunman started shooting in through the windows of the Blue Parrot club around 3:30 AM and at least five people were killed with more injured.
The DJ on duty at the time DJ Jackmaster started tweeting about the incident.
“Someone has come into the club in Playa Del Carmen and opened fire. 4-5 dead and many wounded. Stay in ur fuckin hotel if you’re here at BPM.”
At least one witness has given a statement about the night.
“The music stopped and so did the shots, so we got up and one man was down on the floor and looked dead, and another man had been shot but was trying to stay on his feet. Everyone tried to run out to the beach from the club and all of a sudden we heard another shot and everyone dropped again and it kept going on. Finally got out from there and got up to the Main Street and there was another man dead on the street, so everyone started running for their lives.”
