Press Conference Adds Few More Details To Nightclub Shooting
Band Photo: Damageplan (?)
After listening to the live press conference (regarding the nightclub shooting and slaying of Damageplan's Dimebag Darrell) at 11pm ET, I have some additional details to add about the incident:
Officer James Niggemeyer, a 5 year verteran, had never been involved in shooting before. Receiving incoming reports of additional gunshots and victims, he moved in with no backup to confront the gunman, Nathan Gale, with a hostage under his arm in a headlock. Officer Niggemeyer "strategically gunned the man down" before Gale could kill the hostage or anyone else. The hostage was not injured.
The officers are looking into possible ametuer videos shot at the time of the attack.
It has been reported by witnesses that the gunman, Gale, jumped a fence and entered the nightclub from a side entrance.
Alrosa Villa has, in the past, had other minor incidents including a shooting in their parking lot.
There are unconfirmed rumors from witnesses that the gunman shouted "you broke up Pantera" as he jumped on stage, but the officer stated that it was too loud to make out what the attacker may or may not have said.
