MEXICO CITY – Unidentified gunmen shot dead Israeli electronic music DJ Ronen Dahan, also known as Perplex, during an attack at a dance club in the central Mexican city of San Luis Potosi, authorities said on Saturday.
The attorney general’s office for the surrounding state of San Luis Potosi said in a statement that a group of armed men entered the club in the south of the city early on Saturday and opened fire, killing Dahan, 45, and wounding three other people.
One of the wounded later died of his injuries in a hospital.
Dahan did not appear to have been targeted in the shooting at the club, in the neighborhood of Teirra Blanca on the edge of the city.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry told the Hebrew-language press that it was looking into the circumstances of the incident although local reports suggest the shooting was linked to the ongoing drug cartel violence in the country.
Dahan used a Facebook setting to signal his location in San Luis Potosi less than 24 hours ago.
Friends and fans wrote words of comfort and disbelief on his Facebook page.
