Nick Alexander was the manager killed that night. His family released a statement about his death saying,

“It is with huge sorrow that we can confirm that our beloved Nick lost his life at the Bataclan last night. Nick was not just our brother, son and uncle; he was everyone’s best friend – generous, funny and fiercely loyal. Nick died doing the job he loved and we take great comfort in knowing how much he was cherished by his friends around the world. Thank you for your thoughts and respect for our family at this difficult time. Peace and light.”

Many others expressed their sympathy upon hearing about his death as he worked with other music groups also. Friends of Alexander have reached their goal and more as they set up a go fund me to help pay for funeral expenses. They reached over $25k.

Helen Wilson was with Alexander in the concert hall at the time of the shooting. Wilson went into details sharing the gruesome account of that night.

“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.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 [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.”

There is a video showing the drummer of the group, Julian Dorio, ducking as the shooting starts. Sources have released a gruesome photo of the blood filled arena. Very hard to look at.
