Several people dead in nightclub shooting at Mexico BPM Festival

Witnesses have described hiding under tables until they were able to flee through a back gate, as shots were fired inside.


Gun shots were fired at the closing party of BPM Festival in Playa Del Carmen, Mexico early this morning (January 16), reportedly killing at least five people including a security guard.

“Someone has come into the club in Playa Del Carmen and opened fire. 4-5 dead and many wounded,” Jackmaster tweeted from an Elrow event at the Blue Parrot venue. “Stay in ur fuckin hotel if you’re here at BPM.” Staff at Mixmag attending the festival have since confirmed shots were fired.

According to Jackmaster “now more shots fired at another club in the area.” Mixmag reports that a second shooting occurred at a venue called The Jungle, where another BPM closing party was taking place.
