The Heartbreaking Screams of Losing a Dear Brother
Immediately after the horrible event happened, a bereaved brother shouted “He shot my brother! He shot my brother!” Immediately, Vinnie Paul jumped from his place on the drums to get to where his brother’s bloodied body lay on his guitar. Such actions, added to the anger that was being unloaded by the murderer, caused him to take a band technician hostage.
The harrowing cries of Vinnie continued for a long time, as he watched as his brother’s figure seemed to disappear into a huge pool of blood. This fact would mark everyone’s life, and it was considered a great tragedy.
The Moments of Tension Were Far from Over
Everyone present was horrified, panic and chaos seized the place. The murderer, not happy with the crime he had committed, fired his weapon once more, in this case against all the attendees that were within his reach. This resulted in the death toll of that night increasing to 4 people.
The attacker injured 2 people and ended the lives of three spectators, including Dimebag Darrell. Clearly, the tragedy was not over yet. One of the band’s technicians acted heroically while trying to bring down the murderer, whose name would be identified as Nathan Gale, who belonged to the navy. But his attempt did not bear fruit and as a reaction, Gale took him hostage, the situation only got worse.
The Person Who Ended the Tragedy and Avoided Many More Deaths
The madness of that night in that nightclub seemed endless. In a few minutes, the calls for help were heard. The police officer James D. Niggemeyer, who managed to get cautiously to the stage where he found the murderer, assessed the horrible scene. He found the dead, the wounded, and a man willing to kill anyone who got in his way, so he knew how to end that horrible night.
The officer pointed his gun at the horrible man and shot him in the neck. That’s how he prevented this person from claiming many more lives. The spectators calmed down a little when they saw that the officer was in charge. After a short while, everyone present realized that they had lost one of their dearest idols forever. There was nothing left to do. Dimebag Darrell was shot, and the six bullet impacts he received took the life of an amazing person, a pioneer, a dear friend, and one of the greatest guitarists in metal history.
