Reverol added that a tear gas device exploded on Saturday night after the fight broke out during a graduation celebration at "Los Cotorros" club, triggering the stampede. Interior Minister Nestor Reverol said the stampede began when a tear gas grenade was set off during a brawl.
Another five were injured and dozens of partygoers fell down the stairs as the main door to the club, also known as Los Cotorros, was closed.
Reverol said authorities had arrested seven people and an investigation into the incident was ongoing. At the time of the conflict one of the assailants used a grenade of tear gas that led to panic and stampede among those who came to relax. The opposition councilman said that other incidents had happened there in the past.
"The kids couldn't leave", Perdomo said. Several campaign signs for Ecuadorean politicians were hung outside the building.
Authorities have not released the name of the owner or details on the charges. "We send our condolences to the families".
