    Gunman targets heavy metal band

    Damageplan were formed by ex-members of metal group Pantera
    A gunman opened fire on a rock band and crowd during a concert at a nightclub in Columbus, Ohio, on Wednesday, killing four people and injuring two.
    The man targeted heavy metal group Damageplan, which contains former members of Pantera, as they began their set in a club packed with 200 people.

    At least one member of the band is believed to be among the dead.

    Police said the man got on stage and fired on the band before turning on the crowd. He was then shot dead by police.

    'Horrific scene'

    Columbus police spokesman Sergeant Brent Mull said an officer arrived shortly after the shooting began.

    "If the officer wasn't as close as he was, I think this would have been a lot worse," he said. "It was a chaotic scene, just a horrific scene."

    Sgt Mull would not identify the victims of the attack at the Alrosa Villa club and said the motive was not known.

    One witness, Chris Couch, 22, who said he was standing about 30 feet (nine metres) from the stage, said a man wearing a hooded sweatshirt and hockey jersey walked up to the stage.

    'Grudge'

    "It was definitely a grudge. It was against something," he said.

    Damageplan were formed in 2003 by guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott and drummer brother Vinnie Paul Abbott after their former band, Pantera, split up.

    Pantera were one of the most popular metal bands of the early 1990s, topping the US album charts and getting a Grammy nomination for 1994 release Far Beyond Driven.

    The pair were joined in the new band by singer Pat Lachman and bassist Bob "Zilla" Kakaha.

    Rumor had it that Vinnie was dead too - but apparently a steak and onion hoagie that he was eating blocked the bullet.

    I know perfectly well who dimebag was.

    When I started the thread it hadn't been released yet that it was dimebag who was killed.

    I am all for having a mod change the title of the thread to focus on the death of dimebag darrel.
