Danny Ocean has spoken out after a shooting took place following a concert of his in Mexico, saying that he ‘doesn’t know what to say’ and is ‘with’ his fans.

It has been reported that following a performance by the Venezuelan singer in Morelia, Michoacán, a mass shooting took place.

Shots were said to have been heard outside the Plaza de Toros Monumental de Morelia at around 11:30pm, with local media suggesting that at least one person has died and 10 have been injured.

In a statement posted on Twitter, Ocean, 30, said that he’s ‘never been in this situation’.

In the message translated from Spanish, he said: ‘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.’

Newspaper El Financiero reported that shots were fired at the entrance to the Plaza de Toros Monumental de Morelia.

Two vehicles that were parked close to the venue are said to have been the target of the gunshots, with witnesses claiming they saw a group of armed individuals carry out the attack.

Trucks from the scene were photographed with hole dents and shattered windows.

At least one person has been arrested in connection with the incident, with a motive yet to be discovered.

El Universal reports that the authorities have yet to release an official statement about the shooting.

Ocean is best-known for his song Me Rehúso, which was originally released in 2016 before the musician also came out with an English version called Baby I Won’t the following year.

In 2020, he was nominated at the Billboard Latin Music Awards for Latin Pop Album of the Year.
