virgilioBanda Tierra Mojada‘s director was murdered in Salamanca, Mexico over the weekend.

Virgilio Ruiz Garcia was shot and killed just after a performance in which some rowdy men asked for specific songs to be played – which the band declined to do.

After the show, when the musicians were getting on the bus, the same men approached the musical group, started arguing about something, and opened fire.

One of the bullets hit Virgilio in the head.

He was rushed to the hospital where he later died.

The band as a whole has not released a statement about the tragedy, but his family has talked to the media saying they will miss Virgilio and cherish all of the moments they lived together. RIP.
