Murder on the dancefloor after DJ shot dead for rejecting drunk blokes song

A drunk reveller has shot a mobile DJ dead at a church disco after they refused to play his song request.

The disco took place in Guatemala and turned deadly after a DJ refused to play a track requested by a drunk attendee because the party had come to an end.

The fatal shooting of the travelling DJ occurred at a festival honouring Saint Isidore the Labourer in the village of San Isidro, Esquipulas.

Mobile DJ Edwin Villafuerte, 35, was leading the party from the turntables when he was fatally shot for refusing one last song from a drunk party attendee.

The 35-year-old also worked as a primary school teacher in his home town of Olopa, a neighbouring area to Esquipulas in the Guatemalan department of Chiquimula.

When the event was over, a drunk man staggered over to the part-time DJ and requested a song, according to reports.

Villafuerte explained that the party was over and he needed to pack away his DJing equipment, at which point the drunk reveller walked away.

But the drunk partygoer returned shortly afterwards with a gun raised at the DJ, where he shot him dead, apparently furious at having his song request rejected by Villafuerte.

The festival, according to local media, regularly ends with killings and San Isidro residents have complained about the lack of security and the sale of alcohol at the celebration.

The murdered primary school teacher ran the mobile disco in his spare time and was buried in his hometown of Olopa on Monday (May 16).

Local authorities have confirmed they are investigating the fatal shooting, which saw Villafuerte killed for apparently rejecting a song request from a drunk party-goer at the Saint Isidore the Labourer celebrations.

No arrests have been made over the killing yet, with police continuing work on the case.
