Hello and welcome to my personal site, The Peephole. 

The shooting took place shortly after 10 p.m. at Alrosa Villa, located at 5055 Sinclair Rd.

A member of the heavy metal band Damageplan was reportedly shot and killed, Dimebag Darrell, formerly with the band Pantera. The alleged gunman also died at the scene.

Shortly after the band began playing its first song, a man reportedly ran onto the stage and began shooting, according to a witness who identified himself as Sean.

Columbus police Sgt. Brent Mull said the shooter appeared to be targeting the band members. After opening fire on the stage, the gunman turned on the crowd. At that point, an officer shot the man dead, Mall added. Police said there could have been many more fatalities had the officer not killed the gunman.

NBC 4 reported that of the surviving victims, one person was in critical condition while the other was in fair condition. Several others were treated at the scene, suffering from various injuries.

Alrosa Villa is a popular north Columbus nightspot for young adults, featuring rock and heavy metal bands, NBC 4 reported.

According to the band's Web site, Damageplan was touring nationally. It performed in Buffalo, N.Y., on Tuesday night and had a concert scheduled in Flint, Mich., on Thursday.

Damageplan featured former Pantera artists Dimebag Darrell and Vinnie Paul. The pair were joined by vocalist Patrick Lachman and bassist Bobzilla, according to their Web site.

Dimebag Darrell was reported dead.

Rest in Peace Dimebag... we will miss you.

Shows:  Children of Bodom was amazing!  They stole the show, and I felt bad for Fear Facotry who had to play after them.  But Fear Factory didn't give in, they gave us a great show.   Lamb of God ruled as always, they were back in VA, ther home town and we went crazy.  It was an awesome show.  Till next time... Metal Rules!
