    Crazed fan kills guitarist
    From correspondents in Columbus, Ohio
    December 10, 2004

    AN APPARENTLY vengeful man charged on stage and opened fire at a heavy metal band and fans overnight, killing four people and wounding two others before being shot dead by police.

    Among the dead was "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott, guitarist for the affected band Damageplan, who witnesses said appeared to have been singled out by the gunman and shot several times at close range.

    Some witnesses told police the 25-year-old gunman, Nathan Gale of nearby Marysville, Ohio, screamed "you broke up Pantera" before gunning down Abbott and firing at other band members and the crowd.

    Pantera was a hot Grammy-nominated thrash metal band in the mid-1990s that Abbott, 38, and his brother, drummer Vinnie (Paul) Abbott, formed in the 1980s.
