He additionally injured the band’s visit director Chris Paluska and drum specialist John “Kat” Brooks.
Close by Columbus cop James D. Niggemeyer immediately reacted and shot Gale once in the face with a 12 measure police-issue shotgun after a prisoner figured out how to move off the beaten path. As appeared in unedited film of the occurrence, Gale’s head was in a real sense brushed off by the shotgun impact. A voice could be heard yelling “Buddy, his head is gone”, promptly following the shotgun impact.
