Police in COLUMBUS have revealed the name of the man they think responsible for the killings at the DAMAGEPLAN show yesterday (December 8).

Nathan Gale, 25, of Marysville allegedly shot four people dead, before being shot by police officers, according to NBC.

Approximately 200 people were in the Alrosa Villa Club when the shooting happened. Local police say that a man climbed onto the stage and shot at the band before turning on the crowd.

Guitarist ‘Dimebag’ Darrell Abbott was shot and killed first, before the assassin targeted the crowd.

Police spokesman Brent Mull told the Associated Press that it was lucky the police had been on hand. He said: “If the officer wasn’t as close as he was, I think this would have been a lot worse. It was a chaotic scene, just a horrific scene.”

One witness at the show said: “I just saw the guitarist fall down, and we decided to get out of there.”

Darrell formed Damageplan with brother Vinnie Paul Abbott after the split of Pantera.

The line-up of the band is completed by Pat Lachman and Bob Zilla on bass.
