A pedestrian ran out in front of their vehicle while the band was driving to Tulsa.

Boston punk band Dropkick Murphys canceled a show after their tour bus hit and killed a pedestrian.

The band had played Saturday night in San Antonio, Texas, and was heading to Tulsa, Okla., when a man ran out in front of the bus. The band, whose music was featured in the 2006 film The Departed, announced on Facebook that the man died.

The incident took place north of Austin at 3 a.m. on Sunday morning, according to the Boston Globe.

"We were left with a driver that has been severely shaken up by the accident and a bus too damaged to continue onto Tulsa," the band wrote. "Police suspect a suicide."

All tickets for Sunday's canceled show at Cain's Ballroom in Tulsa will be refunded.
