Two people were killed Sunday at a concert in Atlanta featuring Dorchester rapper Cousin Stizz, police said. One died at the scene, the other at Grady Memorial Hospital.
Authorities said that the two people who died appeared to have gotten rowdy, climbing onto the stage in between sets.
Defecting North Korean soldier shot several times after abandoning escape vehicle
The number of North Koreans defecting to South Korea in the first two-thirds of this year dropped by 13% compared with 2016. South Korea said the 12 women, and one man, had chosen to defect to the South.
Police said the gunman was "not successfully detained". Police have asked that anyone who witnessed the shooting or may have information about the events that unfolded at Underground Atlanta to contact them. "I had to get out of there". Although spotted by a security guard, the shooter was able to escape in the confusion.
Cousin Stizz, 25, is based in Los Angeles, but grew up in Boston's Dorchester neighborhood. I'm in shock and at a loss of words and senseless violence. "My thoughts and prayers go out to the victims and their families", he wrote. 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 USA politicians can do to curb the death toll remain rampant throughout the music industry. Fugazi, Public Enemy, Green Day, Nirvana, Childish Gambino, Future, Paramore, Wiz Khalifa, Big Sean, Blink-182, and many others have graced one or more of the Masquerade's stages in the past.
