    Oh no! A member of Jerry Lee Lewis' band has been shot dead in Memphis, Tennessee.

    Keyboard player B.B. Cunningham, Jr., who had been a member of the group since 1997, was shot at the Cherry Crest apartment complex in the early hours of Sunday (Oct. 14.)

    The musician, 70, was found dead from gunshot wounds, as was a young boy, 16.

    Cunningham served as a security guard for a nearby apartment complex, so the shooting could have had something to do with that role.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family and friends of the victims.
