Dimebag Darrell, guitarist for Damageplan and Pantera, was killed during a shooting spree at a Columbus, Ohio, nightclub Wednesday night. He was 38.

Darrell, real name Darrell Abbott, was among the five dead in the incident, including the as-yet-unnamed shooter and two fans, Nathan Bray and Erin Halk, according to Columbus Police public information officer Sherry Mercurio
 
as-yet-unnamed shooter and two fans, Nathan Bray and Erin Halk, according to Columbus Police public information officer Sherry Mercurio.

Damageplan had just begun their first song in front of several hundred at Alrosa Villa when the gunman jumped onstage, made a comment about Pantera\'s breakup, and began firing at close range into Darrell\'s body, shooting him several times before opening fire on the crowd.

Mercurio said an officer in the vicinity heard the call of shots fired shortly after 10 p.m., snuck in the back door of the venue and confronted the gunman onstage. When the officer took the stage, he observed one victim and the gunman holding a hostage by the neck. The officer opened fire on the male suspect, whose name has not been released pending notification of next of kin. Mercurio said the fifth victim\'s name and those of the two wounded have also not yet been released. Several reports stated that the club had no metal detector, though Mercurio could not confirm that at press time and a club spokesperson could not be reached.

If the officer hadn\'t acted when he did and how he did, we\'d probably be looking at more dead, because this guy was actively shooting, said public information officer Sergeant Brent Mull. Following the incident, police took more than 200 patrons onto three city-donated buses to interview them about the shooting.

The ones that were inside and witnessed this ran for their lives and were in fear for their lives, Hull said. They are victims too, and we want to take care of them.

As news of Dimebag\'s tragic demise rippled through the metal community, the news was met with shock and sadness.

Hey Chris Moss, Zack had nothing to say becuse of shock greif and sadness, Fox news here in cali said the Gun man had Vinnie paul in a head lock perparing to shoot him in the head when a Police officer came in from the street and shot him. So it seems this guy knew whom he was after. He was after the Abbotts. very sad still.

the brite star of Dimebag has been extingished, No more Damage Plan either.

very sad indeed - i heard the same thing, that he was after the Abbotts, but so far no one seems to know who he was or why he singled them out for murder.
Peace.

VP is ok - that\'s a blessing anyway - appears the shooter had some fantasy that Pantera had stolen his lyrics...  http://news.yahoo.com/news?tmpl=story&u=/launch/20041213/en_launch/220522

Peace.
