Tommy Marth, a saxophonist who toured with the Killers between 2008 and 2010 and played on their Sam's Town and Day & Age albums, was found dead Monday in his Las Vegas home. He was 33 years old.
No cause of death was initially given, but Reuters is now reporting that the Clark County Coroner has ruled that Marth died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to his head.
On Monday, the Killers took to their Twitter account to honor Marth's memory, writing, "Last night we lost our friend Thomas Marth. Our prayers are with his family. There's a light missing in Las Vegas tonight. Travel well, Tommy."

A spokesperson for the band could not be reached for comment by MTV News.
Marth was a key member of the Las Vegas music scene, playing with acts like Black Camaro and Halloween Town. He also worked in a variety of capacities at local venues like the Freakin' Frog, Revolution Lounge, the Royal Resort and the Hard Rock Hotel. Since November, he'd worked as Hard Rock's nightlife marketing manager, according to the Las Vegas Sun.
As news of his death began to circulate, the Sun spoke to several local musicians who remembered him as "one of the most talented people in our community." Vegas band the Big Friendly Corporation — which features Marth's older brother, Ryan, and younger sister, Melissa — paid tribute to him by posting a song on their official website called "Heaven's On Your Side," which features his playing.
