Concert shooting

I don't know how many of you are metal fans, but for those that are:

Drudge has this story about a nightclub massacre in which two members of the band Damageplan were shot and killed:

Two members of the heavy metal band Damageplan were reportedly shot and killed, including Dimebag Darrell, formerly with the band Pantera, the station reported. The other band member's name was not released. The alleged gunman also died at the scene, according to police.

Shortly after the band began playing its first song, a man apparently ran onto the stage and began shooting, according to a witness who identified himself as Sean. At first, some members of the audience may have thought the man running onto the stage with a gun was part of the band's act, WCMH reported.
As a guy that goes to a lot of concerts, this is a little frightening. R.I.P Dimebag.

Update: More here, here, and here.
