NICK ALEXANDER, Veteran Merch Manager, Feared Dead In Paris Terrorist Attack

Nick Alexander, a British national who was selling merchandise for EAGLES OF DEATH METAL, is believed to have been killed during the tragic attack at the band's concert in Paris Friday night (November 13). The coordinated attacks across the city have left over 120 dead and hundreds injured.

According to The Telegraph, Alexander, 36, from London, was shot in front of Helen Wilson, an American expat who herself was wounded in both legs.

Wilson, who runs a catering company Rock EN Bol in Paris, told The Telegraph: "We heard a couple of noises outside and people started running into the club. We didn't know what was going on. Then maybe five, six guys came in with machine guns and shotguns and just started shooting people. It was mayhem.

"When anyone started running they would shoot them down. So we got down on the floor. I was afraid whenever I heard a step behind me... they machine-gunned everybody."

"Nick was in front of me when we were lying on the ground and somebody moved and they just turned round and started shooting us. His back was to me and I couldn't see what happened and I tried to keep him talking and then I tried to give him mouth-to-mouth resuscitation and they [the gunmen] were just sort of in the shadows and they would shoot if anyone said anything. Then he couldn't breathe anymore and I held him in my arms and told him I loved him. He was the love of my life."

According to Substream Magazine, Alexander had previously worked with such bands as SUM 41, PANIC! AT THE DISCO and UNDEROATH.
