Five Killed In Concert Stampede

Five people were trampled to death in Guadalupe, Mexico, at a concert May 2.

A cattle fair was hosting the band Intocable when gunshots were fired, causing a panic-stricken crowd, estimated at 500, to rush the exits.

At least 17 other people were injured, according to the head of the Nuevo Leon State Investigative Agency. The dead – two women and three men – lay outside the building surrounded by litter. At least 12 people were detained for questioning.

The shooting occurred outside Monterrey, which has been ravaged with drug-related violence. The Gulf cartel is battling for territory with its former ally, the Zetas gang of hit men. Innocent bystanders have been increasingly caught in the crossfire.

A concertgoer recorded the exit from the venue, which can be seen here.
