Troy Young

Police are still looking for answers in the shooting of a Brooklyn drummer who was found dead in his apartment Friday.

Troy Young, 29, was found in his basement apartment on Fourth Street in Carroll Gardens Friday with a gunshot wound to his head.

By Saturday, police said that Troy was shot in the left shoulder and that the bullet passed through his heart.

The door to the apartment was unlocked and nothing appeared to have been stolen, police said.

Young was the drummer in the Brooklyn band “Curious Mishap.”

“Troy was very hard working, he went to New York to ‘go where the big time is,’ ” said his grieving father Ed told the New York Post. [NBC]

RIP Troy.
