Shocking video shows moment terrorists opened fire at the Bataclan concert hall in Paris

A shocking video has emerged showing the moment terrorists opened fire at the Bataclan concert hall in Paris, leaving 89 dead.

It's known that at least three gunmen opened fire on the crowd of 1,500 concert goers at the Eagles of Death Metal gig before two of the gunmen blew themselves up with suicide vests.

The third was killed by French security forces when they stormed the building.

One of those killed in the massacre at the theatre was Nick Alexander (36) of Colchester, Essex.

He was working at the Bataclan selling merchandise for the Eagles of Death Metal.

"Nick was not just our brother, son and uncle, he was everyone's best friend - generous, funny and fiercely loyal," his family said in a statement.

"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."
