Nov. 25 (UPI) -- South Korean pop star Psy’s “Gangnam Style” provided the soundtrack for a fatal wedding shooting in Yemen that occurred when a guest apparently lost control of his AK-47. While guests were dancing to the hit song, a man hit the dance floor with his assault rife and joined in the dancing.

As the song reached its chorus, the man began spraying bullets in an attempt to be celebratory as people all around him fell to the ground, injured or dead, according to a cellphone video of the incident sent to LiveLeak. At least three attendees were reportedly killed.

It is illegal in many parts of Yemen to carry weapons during weddings, but gunfire during celebrations in the county is reportedly quite common.

It is unclear if the gunman was arrested after the incident.
