Yet another regional Mexican singer has been the victim of attempted murder in Mexico, but in the most brazen fashion. Alfredo Olivas was in the middle of a performance in Chihuahua, Mexico Friday night (Feb. 27) when someone reportedly shot at him as he played his accordion and sang onstage.

In a video posted on YouTube, Olivas can be seen collapsing, still holding the accordion.

The attack took place in the City of Hildago del Parra in the state of Chihuahua.

According to published reports in Mexico’s El Universal, Olivas, 22, dedicated a song to a woman sitting in one of the front rows of the audience. The woman’s boyfriend, bothered by the attention, got up and apparently went for a gun. When he came back, he shot at Olivas seven times, but only hit him twice.
