2 Dead, 2 Injured At Cousin Stizz Concert Shooting In Atlanta
2 Killed, 2 Injured In Shooting At Cousin Stizz Concert
Atlanta police are investigating a shooting at a Cousin Stizz concert over the weekend that left two people dead and two others injured.
Police are investigating a deadly shooting that happened during a concert at The Masquerade in Underground Atlanta.
Atlanta police said they were called to Lower Alabama Street for a report of a person shot. They found four victims when they arrived.
Two people died and two others were hurt, but are stable, according to police.
Witnesses tell Channel 2 Action News they were at a rap concert at the venue when gunshots rang out.
Witnesses described the chaos as they tried to escape.
“Two other females came behind them like, ‘Oh my God, they’re dead!’ And it was crazy. I had to get out of there,” a witness told Channel 2’s Tyisha Fernandes.
Police said their investigation indicates that the two victims who died had become rowdy and climbed up onto the stage during the break before the main act performed. Another attendee was not happy about that and they started arguing.
The upset concert-goer pulled out a pistol and shot the two victims and shot toward the ground, most likely hitting the additional victims, police said.
Everyone, including the victims and shooter, ran toward the front exit of the venue, police said.
Police said an unarmed security guard saw the shooter, but the shooter was able to get away.
They are still searching for the shooter and the investigation is ongoing, police said.
Cousin Stizz released the following statement via Instagram:
This senseless violence has to stop.
Sending prayers and condolences to the victims and their families.
