Investigators tell FOX 5 the shooting happened Sunday around 9:45 p.m. inside The Masquerade on Lower Alabama Street.

Cousin Stizz, for his part, reacted solemnly on Twitter afterwards, telling his fans that he was "completely heartbroken".

It's been reported that two people are dead and another two are wounded following a shooting at a concert in Atlanta. This apparently angered another attendee, which sparked an argument. The gunman also fired toward the ground, and "most likely" hit the other victims at that time.

Police said that everyone in the club, including the victims and shooter, then ran for the club's exit.

Here is a flyer with photos of both men.

Atlanta police first responded to reports of one person being shot at the venue, now located inside the Underground Atlanta entertainment district after moving from its original location on North Avenue in the Old Fourth Ward. Two others were injured but are stable. Bender added, "The suspected shooter, still armed, was witnessed by unarmed security but was not successfully detained".

Detectives intend to examine club surveillance footage for more information.

Cousin Stizz was not injured during the shooting.

Authorities say a shooting at a concert in downtown Atlanta has left two people dead and two people wounded. I'm in shock and at a loss for words for the senseless violence. "My thoughts and prayers to out to the victims and their families".
