Authorities rushed to the scene and found the body of 45-year-old Ronen Dahan, an Israeli citizen better known as DJ Perplex. Paramedics rushed three other shooting victims to a local hospital where one of them also died. Authorities only identified that victim as 31-year-old Alvaro (N). The state of San Luis Potosi is currently under the control of the Cartel Del Noreste (CDN) faction of Los Zetas — a violent criminal organization that has been terrorizing several other states in Mexico. As Breitbart News reported, the CDN is linked to numerous mass shootings at bars and other entertainment venues throughout their areas of operation. The shootings occur regardless of the presence of innocent bystanders.
In recent weeks, Dahan, had been on tour throughout Mexico performing at numerous cities. He recently posted a video where he was enjoying local food during his travels.
