On December 8, 2004, a shooting occurred at the Alrosa Villa club in Columbus, Ohio, leaving four people dead and three more hurt. The main target of the attack was “Dimebag” Darrell Abbott, who was performing on stage with his band Damageplan at the time.

Three minutes after the shooting started, police officer James Niggemeyer shot and killed the shooter. After receiving multiple gunshot wounds to the head, Abbott was immediately pronounced dead.

Nathan Gale was born in Marysville, Ohio, on September 11, 1979.

Prior to switching to Marysville High School in the midst of his junior year and enrolling in the vocational program at the Ohio Hi-Point Career Center, where he learned electrical and construction projects, he participated in wrestling competitions at Benjamin Logan High School.

Gale complained a lot about being seen, which his mother Mary Clark attributed to his drug use. After a physical argument with Clark that culminated in a police visit, Gale was expelled from the house. He subsequently supported himself by panhandling and stealing until he agreed to sign up for a drug treatment program.

On December 8, 2004, a concert featuring Damageplan took place at Columbus, Ohio’s Alrosa Villa nightclub. Despite the theater holding 600 people, just 250 tickets were available for the evening’s show.

Gale responded, “I just like to be outdoors,” when asked by club manager Rick Cautela and other audience members why he was outside for the opening acts, Volume Dealer and 12 Gauge. “Any local bands who perform at whorehouses are not welcome. Therefore, I’ll wait till Damageplan.”

Midway into Damageplan’s performance, Gale took the stage while sporting a Columbus Blue Jackets hockey jersey and a hooded hoodie. Then he produced his semi-automatic Beretta 92FS 9mm handgun.
