Gunman opens fire at BPM music festival in Mexico

Tourists have been caught up in a deadly shooting at an electronic music festival in Mexico, which left at least five people dead and sparked a stampede.

A lone gunman opened fire at the Blue Parrot nightclub in Playa Del Carmen just after 3am Monday local time (9pm NZT) on the last night of the BPM festival, according to an official statement.

Fifteen people were injured, some in the stampede, and three of the dead were from the US, Colombia and Canada, Mayor Cristina Torres told Turquesa radio.
