Two people are reportedly dead after a Cousin Stizz concert turned violent on Sunday night (Nov. 12), ABC News reports.

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

Police are looking for one man they believe targeted the deceased before fleeing. Police say that patron then pulled out a pistol and shot the two "rowdy" fans on stage, and then also fired toward the ground and "most likely" hit the other victims at that time.

However, the SEALs told superiors that Melgar was drunk during hand-to-hand fight exercises, the Daily Beast reported . The Naval Criminal Investigative Service (NCIS) are still piecing together the chain of events that led to his death.

Cousin Stizz, who was set to perform, posted a statement on Instagram saying he was "completely heartbroken". The two who were injured suffered non-life-threatening wounds "to their feet and ankles". "I've always called my shows family reunions because they're never anything but fun, safe, good vibes, and positivity", he wrote.

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. "My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families". After shooting sprees that went down in Sutherland Springs, Texas and, perhaps most horrifically, at an outdoor music festival in Las Vegas, the questions surrounding gun control and what more US politicians can do to curb the death toll remain rampant throughout the music industry.
