Mario DJ dead at 41 – José Mario Duarte shot dead by furious partygoer after ‘he refused song request in nightclub’ | The Sun

A FURIOUS partygoer reportedly gunned down a DJ after he refused to play a song he requested in a club.

José Mario Duarte, 41, was shot dead in Pirapetinga, Brazil, shortly after finishing his set in the early hours at a bustling local bar.

The musician, known as Mario DJ, had been in charge of the tunes at a party on Sunday while crowds of revellers danced the night away.

He had shared an Instagram post inviting his pals to Bar do Branco, promising he would be "playing only the best."

But not everyone was ready for the bash to end when José played his final song and a group of men began badgering him to continue.

They pestered the DJ to stick on another tune and tensions soon began to flare when he refused their song request.

Witnesses told how the gang began arguing with the up-and-coming artist, before he left the venue to head home a short time later.

On his way back to his property in Santo Antonio de Padua, at least two of the men followed him before ambushing the DJ in the dark.

José was horrifically dragged from his home at gunpoint and reportedly taken to a remote area of Alto do Morro by the thugs.

He was then shot dead following the music row.
