TRAGEDY @ CARL COX gig Red Noise, Venezuela !
Four people were shot dead at a Carl Cox concert on Saturday in Venezuela after a gunman starting shooting in the crowd.
There are reports on the web that nine people were also injured, and grisly footage of the aftermath was posted on YouTube by the VJ who was playing at the gig at La Rinconada Terrace in Caracas, Venezuela.
On a VJ Forum, VJ Rei from Venezuela described the attack and said he saw three dead bodies on the dancefloor:
“Last night, 15 meters from me when Carl Cox started his show and 10 minutes into it someone started to shoot everyone. It sounded like firecrackers, it was so fast I didn’t think it was a gun.
“Everybody started to run like crazy.
“I was in the main booth, doing my visuals and filming the show.
I just grabbed the camera and started to film everything that was going on.
”The film has now been removed from YouTube.
Carl Cox was headlining the event called Red Noise, and on Monday this statement was posted on his website Carlcox.com
“I am deeply shocked and still stunned by the events of this Saturday [3rd November]
“My condolences go out to victims that were caught up in this horrific act that took place at this gig.“
I am informed that it was gang related and feel so sad that anybody would act in such a manner when the event was full of 7000 people having fun!
“I will try my best to continue on the tour across South America however deeply shocked and shaken I am.”

"Our condolences go out to the people that fell victim to this hideous act.Its deeply shocking to hear about this kind of thing going on with all those innocent people there such a tragic end lets hope this kind of thing never happens again and people can still party and have fun without living in fear of something so catastrophic happening again our condolences go out to the people and there family's.

To be honest I'm not sure why this hasn't happened earlier. Sure the doormen were doing a shit job, but people wanting drugs = drug dealers in clubs = a high chance of violence.... very sad.
