    Two Massachusetts men were reportedly fatally shot at a concert venue in Atlanta, Georgia, Sunday night following an argument. 

    According to Atlanta Police, 21-year-old Worcester resident Ewell Ynoa, who was also from Florida, was fatally shot at the Masquerade Club's "Hell" venue in the Kenny's Alley section of Underground Atlanta.

    The other victim has not been identified by police, but the family of Massachusetts resident Giovan Diaz said he was the second victim.

    Police say Ynoa and another man climbed up on stage during a Cousin Still concert. An argument ensued and a man in the audience drew a gun and shot both of them. 

    He then fired towards the crowd, injuring two other people, before attempting to flee. He was caught by security before he was able to escape. 

    Diaz's brother told NBC Boston that Ynoa and Diaz were hired to be hype men for the concert and were not as "rowdy" as police said.

    Police are also seeking a person of interest in connection with the incident.
