25-year-old gunman Nathan Gale, who fatally shot four people — including Damageplan guitarist “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott — at Columbus, Ohio’s Alrosa Villa nightclub Wednesday night alarmed the club’s workers before the gig, according to RollingStone.com. “He was hanging around trying to get in,” manager Rick Cantella said. “We told him… that he had to pay to get in like anyone else. One of my loaders told him to leave… He was hanging around trying to talk to the members of the band, and he was shooed away.” Gale jumped an eight-foot fence to get inside just before the show, and headed straight for the stage. “There were guys chasing him as soon as he got in,” explained Cantella, “not because [they saw] he had a gun, but because he jumped this fence and didn’t pay.”
