Mexican Musicians Killed After (2nd) Encore Refused

Mexican Musicians Killed After Encore Refused - Grenade, bullets fly after bar owner pulls plug:


One of the instigators threw a grenade at the stage after the music stopped. The band fled for the exit but musicians were met with a hail of bullets that killed two of them, including 22-year-old bandleader Jonathan Martinez. Police believe the attackers were connected to drug gangs, but they have little to go on, as nobody was able to provide details about the shooters' getaway vehicle.
"Police believe the attackers were connected to drug gangs." Do you think? Out of curiosity, I tried to find the first incidence in a movie of someone shooting at someone's feet to force them to dance and it looks like that old trope goes all the way back to The Great Train Robbery (1903)
