    As we don't have the context here, I'm guessing but I'd be inclined to go for:

    "One person has already been killed, so what if it becomes two?"

    It is not very clear what you are trying to say, I would guess that in the first part you want to say, 'One person has already been killed,...' Can you try to explain a bit more what you want to say in the second part?

    I agree with emsr2d2 and bhaisahab.

    Let me try the second part of the sentence.

    If there are two people have been killed, what terrible thing will happening soon?


    I restructure O.P's sentence and add my own style.

    "If there are two people have been killed, what terrible thing will happening soon?" - sorry, this isn't just "your own style", it's bad English. The first half should read "If there are two people WHO have been killed....." and the best I can do with the second half would be "what terrible thing MIGHT HAPPEN soon". However, even if you put the two halves together, it's still not a good sentence. Plus, it bears no relation to what the OP actually said!
