Roger and Larry Troutman of the funk band Zapp died

Sunday in what police are calling an apparent murder-suicide, according

to an Associated Press report. The brothers, who were both shot,

were found several blocks apart Sunday morning in Dayton, Ohio, according

to the report. Bandleader Roger Troutman, who was 47, died in surgery

after being taken to the nearby Good Samaritan Hospital and Health Center.

Larry Troutman, who was 54, was found dead in a car, with a gunshot

wound to his head, the AP reported. Zapp, which also included

their brothers Terry and Lester Troutman, scored such R&B

hits as "More Bounce to the Ounce" (1980) and "Dance Floor (Part 1)"

(1982); Roger Troutman's solo hits included the 1987 pop smash "I Want

to Be Your Man" (1982). In 1996, he added his trademark vocoder sound to

Tupac Shakur's single "California Love."
