  • I said no smoking! *BANG*

    A Nashville musician died Saturday after being shot in the head at a downtown bar.

    Metro police identified the victim as Jerald Wayne Mills, 44, a member of the Wayne Mills Band.

    According to police, Mills was shot at about 5 a.m. during an argument at Pit and Barrel, which is located on 2nd Avenue South.


    Michael Scott, a friend who was with Mills and the group, tells Channel 4 News that Mills and Ferrell started arguing when Mills began to smoke in a non-smoking area.


    Scott says the group of friends attended the George Jones tribute concert Friday night and then went drinking at a couple of bars before going to Pit & Barrel. He says he can not imagine what could have caused Ferrell to shoot Mills.

    The shooter claims it was self-defense. I suspect that may not actually be the case, but I'm guessing we'll find out soon enough. These guys went out drinking after the George Jones benefit concert, which started mid-day and ran well into the night, so I suspect that the band members had been drinking for 12 hours or more. This shooting happened at 5:00 in the morning, and mandated closing time is 3:00.

    Smoking really will kill you.
