Police: NYC shooter was dumped from band

November 11, 2013

NEW YORK (AP) — Police say a musician who shot and killed three other Iranian men inside a New York City apartment before committing suicide was upset because he had been kicked out of an indie rock band.

Ali Akbar Mohammadi Rafie (UH'-lee UHK'-bahr Muh-HAH'-muh-dee RAH'-fee) gunned down the men just after midnight on Monday.

Victims Soroush (SOW'-roosh) and Arash Farazmand (OHR'-ahsh Fahr-OHZ'-mahnd) were brothers who played in a band called the Yellow Dogs.

The third victim, Ali Eskandarian (UH'-lee EHS'-kahn-dahr-ee-AHN'), also was a musician.

Police said Rafie had been kicked out of the Free Keys last year in a dispute over money.

After the shooting, investigators found a guitar case on a rooftop they believe the shooter may have used to carry the assault rifle used in the attack.
