Four people shot, 2 killed in shooting during Cousin Stizz concert 

Two concert goers are dead following a shooting during a concert in Atlanta on Sunday.

The incident occurred at Underground Atlanta at 9:37 p.m., according to Fox 5. Cousin Stizz, a Los Angeles-based performer, was headlining the show.

Police told the outlet that between the second and third act of the night, a few audience members climbed on stage. This apparently angered another attendee, which sparked an argument.

According to authorities, the gunman drew a pistol and shot at the men who’d climbed on stage. He also reportedly fired toward the ground.

 

Innocent bystanders were hit in the ankle and foot as a result, Fox 5 reported.

After firing off a few shots, the gunman ran along with victims and other patrons out of the club.

Both men who’d climbed onto the stage were found on the stairs leading outside. One died at the scene, the other at Grady Memorial Hospital.

Paramedics rushed two other injured parties to the hospital where they were listed as being in stable condition, according to Fox 5.

The gunman has not yet been identified. Police have asked that anyone who witnessed the shooting or may have information about the events that unfolded at Underground Atlanta to contact them.

Detectives intend to examine club surveillance footage for more information.

Cousin Stizz was not injured during the shooting.

He tweeted a statement about the shooting, sending his condolences.

 

The 25-year-old said he was “completely heartbroken,” calling his fans “family.”

“I’m in shock and at a loss of words for the senseless violence. My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families,” he wrote.

The Atlanta Police Department homicide squad’s investigation into the shooting is ongoing.
