Shots Fired At L.A. Guns Show - 08 Rewind

Shots Fired At L.A. Guns Show was a top story for September. Enjoy our 2008 news rewind as you read the story again:(BW&BK) Some scary moments at Omaha's annual Septemberfest celebration when occupants of two vehicles began firing at each other in the parking lot outside the Qwest Center Sunday night. No one was hurt. Police say about a dozen people were taken in for questioning.

(The Phil Lewis version of) L.A. Guns were performing at the venue when shots were fired. Singer/guitarist Phil Lewis sent BW&BK the following note regarding the show:

"Back at the hotel early tonight on account of our show getting abruptly shut down because a gun fight erupting adjacent to the stage. Up until that point the day was peachy, county fair kind of thing kiddy rides, funnel cakes etc in the parking lot of the Qwest Center in Omaha NB. We hit the stage at 10 pm and the place was rocking, All age gig, tons of kids up front lots of fans that always show up when ever we play, great stage sound and lights. Perfect. Until I noticed during 'Over The Edge' three songs in to our set a stampede of at least a hundred people running through the crowd from right too left at full panic speed closely followed by cops and security giving the cut throat stop the show signal that took a moment to sink in before we quit playing and within seconds several cops with guns drawn formed a blanket around us and whisked us back to the dressing room. - [Read more from Phil here but an FYI: Tracii Guns was reportedly not in the area at the time.]
