Court Hearings (Against Bouncers)

Family Of Nightclub Shooting Victim Settles Suit With Club Owners

The family of renowned heavy metal guitarist "Dimebag" Darrell Abbott has settled a wrongful death lawsuit against the owners of the club where he was shot and killed.

A lawyer for the Columbus club says the terms of the settlement won't be released.

Abbott, a former member of the band Pantera, was playing with his new band Damageplan in December 2004 when Nathan Gale rushed the stage, pulled out a handgun and began firing. Abbott and three others were killed before a Columbus police officer killed the Gale.

The suit claimed the owners of the Alrosa Villa nightclub provided inadequate security that allowed Gale to sneak in through a side door.

The club's manager released a statement that says it sympathized with the victims but couldn't have done anything to stop the shootings.
