Kate Nash was caught up in a gun fire siege in Los Angeles on Saturday (30.01.16) and had to cancel her booked DJ set as she couldn't leave her house
Kate Nash had to cancel her Los Angeles DJ set after getting caught up in a shooting incident.
The 28-year-old British singer - who is working on her fourth studio LP in California - was due to do a show on Saturday (30.01.16), but was forced to lock herself inside her home as armed gunmen paraded through the neighbourhood.
She shared: "I ran downstairs really quietly and locked my front gate as quick as I could, then ran back up, put my alarm on and stayed indoors.
"There were helicopters and sirens sounding until 5am. It was pretty terrifying. I don't scare easily, but I'm so anti-guns."
The 'Foundations' hitmaker described how frightened she was when she witnessed a neighbour caught up in the incident.
She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "We weren't sure what to do about the lights and noise because we didn't want to draw attention but also didn't want the house to seem empty. I have quite a big garden and after they held one of my neighbours up they were on the loose, and we didn't want them looking for a hideout."
Kate took to her Twitter account to inform fans she'd have to pull the gig at Girl School, because she was on "lock down" and told not to leave the house.
On the night, she tweeted: "Due to an unexpected emergency in my neighbourhood, authorities have advised me to stay indoors, on lock down here & I can't get out to DJ. I don't really know what to say, this is freaky & sucks & I'm really sorry I can't be at Girl School. Unfortunately it is just not safe for me to leave my house right now (sic)"
