This morning, a shooter opened fire at the EDM-based BPM Festival in Playa del Carmen, Mexico, killing 4 (UPDATE: It’s not 5) and injuring more at the Blue Parrot club on the 10-day event’s closing night. The reasons for the violence isn’t yet known.

BPM organizers have released a statement via social media, which can be read in its entirety below.

It is with great sadness to share that police have confirmed reports of a lone shooter outside the Blue Parrot nightclub in Playa Del Carmen earlier today, which resulted in four fatalities and twelve injured. The violence began on 12th street in front of the club and three members of the BPM security team were among those whose lives were lost while trying to protect patrons inside the venue.

The BPM Festival has been working closely with the local authorities (Seguridad Publica / Policia Turistica) throughout the festival to ensure public safety and security for all visitors. We are overcome with grief over this senseless act of violence and we are cooperating fully with local law enforcement and government officials as they continue their investigation.

Our thoughts and prayers are with all the victims and their families and all those affected by these tragic events.
