Saturday, the owner of the Pit and Barrel, Chris Michaels Ferrell shot and killed Jerald Wayne Mills at the bar. Jerald Wayne Mills was part of the Wayne Mills Band. The news stories that are out there about the incident state that Chris Michaels Ferrell and Wayne Mills got in an argument around 5:00am over Mills smoking in a non-smoking section of the bar. Things escalated and Chris Michaels Ferry shot Wayne Mills in what he is claiming was self-defense. Wayne Mills was transported to the hospital and later died.
This is the 2nd shooting and fatality at a Bar Rescue bar this week, with the other occurring at Second Base Bar and Grill. It remains to be seen if Spike TV will air tonight's episode of Bar Rescue at Pit and Barrel. If you are looking at the earlier update I posted, most of the links will be broken as Pit and Barrel has deactivated their Facebook page.
If more information comes out about this incident, I will keep everyone up to date.
Update - From the looks of the Bar Rescue schedule on Spike TV's website, it looks like they have replaced tonight's episode with a rerun.
UPDATE 11/25/2013 - Spike TV actually aired the encore episode of the Pit and Barrel episode. More information with screenshots here.
