On December 8, 2004, four people were murdered and three others were wounded in a mass shooting at the Alrosa Villa nightclub in Columbus, Ohio. Heavy metal musician Dimebag Darrell, the main target of the attack, was on stage with his band Damageplan when the shooting took place. The perpetrator, 25-year-old Nathan Gale, was shot and killed by police officer James Niggemeyer while holding a wounded victim hostage.

Dimebag Darrell, real name Darrell Abbott, sustained multiple gunshots to the head and was pronounced dead at the scene. Damageplan's head of security, Jeffrey "Mayhem" Thompson, tackled Gale and was fatally shot in the ensuing struggle. A fan, Nathan Bray, who attempted to aid Abbott and Thompson, was also murdered, as was Erin Halk, an employee of the nightclub who tried to disarm Gale as he was reloading.

Gale was enlisted in the United States Marine Corps from February 2002 until he was discharged in November 2003, after he received a diagnosis of paranoid schizophrenia. A fan of Abbott's previous band Pantera, Gale's friends reported that he believed Pantera had stolen his lyrics and that its members were attempting to steal his identity.

Didn't see a thread for this shooting, so I figured I'd go ahead and make one. It's interesting to me that this was essentially an assassination that devolved into a mass shooting. Are there any other incidents like this? Strikes me as quite unique.

Nice to see somebody finally made a wikipedia page for it.

Jesus Christ, I checked the article history and it says it was made this year. Some of these shootings really fall under the radar.
