Funeral Services Scheduled For Man Killed While Working At DAMAGEPLAN Concert

Funeral services for Erin A. Halk, one of four people who were killed by Nathan Gale at the Alrosa Villa nightclub in Columbus, Ohio Wednesday night, are scheduled for Monday (Dec. 13) at Our Lady of Peace Catholic Church in Clintonville.

According to Columbus' NBC 4, Halk, 29, graduated from Upper Arlington High School and served in the United States Marine Corps.

He was working at music venues throughout Columbus and was setting up stages for bands and working security. He was working at the DAMAGEPLAN concert at Alrosa Villa, NBC 4's Elizabeth Scarborough reported.

Police said that once the band began playing, Gale jumped onto the stage and began firing a handgun at band members and into the crowd. Halk was one of four people who were killed by Gale, police said.

Darin Hadinger, a childhood friend, said he feels for Halk's family.

"My thoughts are with them," Hadinger said. "I hope they pull really close right now."
