NEW YORK (AP) — Police in New York City believe a gunman was carrying up to 100 rounds of ammunition during a bloody rampage that left two members of an Iranian indie rock band and a third person dead.
Ali Akbar Mohammadi Rafie (UH'-lee UHK'-bahr muh-HAH'-muh-dee RAH'-fee) fired several shots before committing suicide early Monday.
Police Commissioner Raymond Kelly said Tuesday that investigators have recovered 81 unfired rounds following the slayings of the members of the band Yellow Dogs. Police said some of the rounds were found inside a guitar case the shooter used to carry an assault weapon.
Investigators say Rafie was upset about being kicked out of the Free Keys, another Iranian band with close ties to the Yellow Dogs.
