Apparently this rock band was so important to the shooter.
Over the weekend there was a murderous shooting in Brooklyn where 4 men were found dead after the shooter used a military rifle to kill all his former band-mates for kicking him out of the group. The shooter was so disgruntled after killing his friends, he later took his life. According to NY Post reports:
A musician furious over being thrown out of a rock band extracted bloody revenge in an early morning attack in Brooklyn Monday — using a military-style rifle to fatally shoot three people believed to be bandmates, wound another person and then take his own life, law enforcement sources said.
The triple-homicide took place at 318 Maujer St., a Bushwick building where at least some members of the band are believed to live.
The killer, brandishing a Century Sporter .308-caliber semi-automatic weapon with a 20-round magazine, showed up around midnight and opened fire on a person standing outside.
That person was wounded.
Then he stormed into the building and kept firing off round after round.
Cops said the building was filled with spent shells.
He fatally shot two people on the first floor and one on the third.
The third floor victim was shot in his bed.
The crazed murderer also fired into a first floor bathroom, where a couple was apparently hiding.
They were not injured.
Then he went to the roof of the building and shot himself to death.
The band is made up of Iranians who have been in the country for a while and were seeking asylum here, law enforcement sources.
Neighbors say the shooting was so unexpected. Although the neighborhood has heard gunshots before, it’s not an often occurrence. A neighbor that heard the shots spoke with reporters and said that it was unbelievable that it happened as all the victims & shooter were all close friends.
Prayers for the families of those affected. R.I.P.
