Four people are dead in Brooklyn today, and sources are pointing the finger at a musician who they say was out for revenge. The New York Post reports that the gunman arrived at a Bushwick building around midnight and began shooting a semi-automatic weapon; police describe a scene littered with spent shells and note there was no indication of forced entry. Two people were murdered on one floor, and a third was killed in bed on a separate floor; a fourth was wounded. The shooter ultimately went to the building's roof and took his own life with a gunshot to the head, reports NBC New York.
The NYPD says the victims were the man's bandmates, and confirmed the shooter had been booted from the band; they could not verify that was the motive. The New York Times digs up a few details on the unnamed men, who are thought to mostly be in their 20s and members of a band called the Yellow Dogs. The Post's law enforcement sources described the men as Iranians who had been here for some time and were hoping to be granted asylum.
