One person has died and several were injured after gunshots were heard in the middle of a concert in Mexico, per reports.

The Venezuelan singer Danny Ocean was performing yesterday night at the Monumental Square, Morelia, when the shooting took place, the newspaper El Financiero reported.

Local media reports say at least one person has died and eight people have been injured.

Witnesses have claimed that a group of armed individuals opened fire at two vehicles parked metres away from the square.

Photographs of the alleged trucks show them dented with holes and their windows shattered.

El Universal reports that, at the time of writing, the authorities have yet to comment on the alleged incident.

But photographs appear to show municipal police and paramedics from the Mexican Red Cross at the scene.

Ocean, known off-stage as Daniel Reyes, tweeted: ‘I don’t understand why these things happen if we came with a message of love!

‘I don’t even know what to say, I’ve never been in this situation. Please take care of yourselves, I am with you. My channels are open for whatever you need.

‘This does not change the love I feel for every corner of Mexico.’
