Police released the name of the gunman who allegedly went on a shooting rampage at a Columbus nightclub Wednesday night, killing four people before a police officer shot him dead.
Nathan Gale, 25, of Marysville, reportedly jumped onto a concert stage and open fire, NBC 4 reported.
The shooting took place shortly after 10 p.m. at Alrosa Villa, located at 5055 Sinclair Rd. A crowd of about 250 people was inside for a concert by Damageplan. The band took the stage shortly after 10 p.m., and minutes later, a man, who was wearing a hockey jersey and hooded sweatshirt, began firing at point-blank range at least four times at guitarist Dimebag Darrell, NBC 4's Kyle Anderson reported.
Dimebag Darrell (Darrell Abbott) was pronounced dead at the scene. Police released the names of two others who died - they were Nathan Bray and Erin Halk, both audience members. Police did not identify the other person who died at the scene. Two people who were shot were transported by ambulance to Riverside. Their names were not released and hospital officials would not comment about their conditions.
Columbus police and firefighters set up a triage outside the nightclub to treat anyone with minor injuries. Many people who were injured during the shooting spree and in the chaos that followed were put on buses and treated for injuries at the scene.
Police have scheduled an 11 a.m. news conference. Watch it live on NBC 4 and nbc4i.com.
