The sister of Knicks player Reggie Bullock was fatally shot Monday night in Baltimore, according to multiple reports.

Listen to your team news NOW.

The Knicks released a statement Tuesday on behalf of team president Steve Mills that said: "Our Knicks family is deeply saddened by the sudden passing of Reggie Bullock & Dennis Smith Jr’s close family members. At times like this, we are reminded that life is bigger than basketball. Our thoughts are with them & their families."

According to TMZ, Bullock's sister, Keiosha Moore, 22, was shot in the chest a few miles from downtown Baltimore and then walked to a nearby hospital. She was pronounced dead at 7:48 p.m.

Police say they do not yet know who shot Moore, TMZ reported.

It's the second time Bullock, 28, has experienced such a tragedy. In 2014, his transgender sister, Mia Henderson, was stabbed to death, also in Baltimore.

Bullock tweeted Tuesday night: "GUN VIOLENCE I WILL LEAD OMM" with a broken heart emoji.

The swingman signed a two-year, $8.2 million contract with the Knicks in the offseason but has yet to play for the team after undergoing back surgery in July. 

The other death Mills' statement referred to was Smith's stepmother, who raised the third-year point guard. 

Smith missed the Knicks' win Monday night against the Bulls, he will be out Wednesday at Orlando, and coach David Fizdale said he does not expect him to return in time for Friday's game at Boston.
