Three members of Brooklyn indie band The Yellow Dogs were shot and killed by an ex-bandmate, who then took his own life, NBC New York reports. A fourth band member was shot twice and injured, but is expected to live.

The shootings took place early Monday morning in an East Williamsburg apartment building, where the band members lived together. The alleged gunman was apparently kicked out of the band a year ago after selling equipment.

Original hailing from Tehran, Iran, members of The Yellow Dog relocated to the United States in 2010. They played frequently at Santos Party House in Manhattan, appeared at SXSW, and had music featured in 2010 film No One Knows About Persian Cats.

But, but, but, ... there's comprehensive gun control in NYC.  Someone get Mayor Mike "I'm the Emperor" Bloomberg on the horn right away!
