‘Gangnam Style’ Shooting: Three Reported Dead [Graphic Video]

A “Gangnam Style” wedding dance reportedly led to the death of three men in Yemen in an accidental shooting according to multiple news agencies.

The news outlets also reported that the disturbing cell phone video of the “Gangham Style” mistaken shooting incident (see embed above) allegedly from the wedding party could not be independently verified as to its legitimacy, however.

The video shows one wedding guest apparently waiving an AK-47 rifle in the air while “Gangnam Style” plays. According to The Independent of London, “A group of men and boys, including the one holding the AK-47, are then seen dancing to the song, with a number of others watching. As the song reaches the chorus machine gun fire is suddenly heard again, and the camera shoots upwards.When it pans down, bodies are seen lying on the floor in pools of blood. The music stops and shouting men run to the injured and dead.”

London’s Daily Mail reports that “It is also not known if the gunman was arrested after the incident. Although it is illegal in many parts of Yemen to carry weapons during weddings, gunfire during such celebrations is common practice.There are frequently reports of fatalities despite the authorities’ best efforts.”

The Mirror of London similarly reports that “Firing guns at weddings is common in Yemen and often leads to accidental shootings. According to the National Yemen website, accidental shootings or weapons tampering accounts for 80 per cent of gun crime.”

In 2012, the “Gangnam Style” craze swept the globe. The viral hit video performed by Psy (Park Jae-Sang), the South Korean rapper who became an international star overnight, is the most watched YouTube video ever.

Last year, The Inquisitr reported that a fun-filled “Gangnam Style” dance competition in Bangkok, Thailand, turned into a full-blown shootout between two rival gangs.
