Sunday's performance was scheduled to feature musical artists Cousin Stizz, Levi Carter, Big Leano and Givon.

Just before Boston rapper Cousin Stizz was to take the stage at his show at the Masquerade in Atlanta, GA, a fight broke out between two audience members who had climbed onto the stage and another attendee. Police quickly responded to calls about a shooting at the venue.

One victim was pronounced dead on the scene, while another died at a hospital a short time later.

Two people were killed and two more injured in a shooting at The Masquerade in Atlanta Sunday night. Investigators said an argument erupted when two of the victims climbed onto the stage during an intermission. "Two others also got wounded, Bender said, most likely when the shooter fired more shots toward the ground". "I've always called my shows family reunions because they're never anything but fun, safe, good vibes, and positivity", he wrote. The third man, pulled his weapon and shot both.

The gunman managed to escape as the crowd fled the club, Bender told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The two injured victims did not receive serious wounds and are expected to recover.

Innocent bystanders were hit in the ankle and foot as a result, Fox 5 reported. I'm in shock and at a loss of words for the senseless violence. Police have asked that anyone who witnessed the shooting or may have information about the events that unfolded at Underground Atlanta to contact them.
