Cousin Stizz "Completely Heartbroken" After Fatal Shooting At His ATL Show

Police are investigating a deadly shooting that happened during a concert at The Masquerade in Underground Atlanta.

The shooting took place at The Masquerade at Underground Atlanta and reportedly occurred after two "rowdy" concertgoers climbed onstage before the rapper's headlining set. It is believed an argument broke out in the crowd, and the dispute led to the shooting. The gunman also fired toward the ground, and "most likely" hit the other victims at that time, Bender said.

One person, who has shot in the chest, was pronounced dead at the scene and another, with wounds to the upper and lower torso, was pronounced dead at a hospital. Police are still seeking the suspect and asking for witnesses to come forward. The other two had injuries to their feet and ankles.


Officials identified 21-year-old Ewell Ynoa, a 21-year-old aspiring rapper from Florida and Worcester, Mass., as one of the fatal victims; Friends identified Giovan Diaz from MA as the other man who died.

"I've always called my shows family reunions because they're never anything but fun, safe, good vibes and positivity", the rapper said in a statement posted on Twitter. The two injured victims did not receive serious wounds and are expected to recover. I'm in shock and at a loss for words for the senseless violence.

Sunday's performance was scheduled to feature musical artists Cousin Stizz, Levi Carter, Big Leano and Givon. "My thoughts and prayers to out to the victims and their families".
