Rapper Dolla is dead after a shooting at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles. A man was shot in the head outside the shopping center and police have confirmed that Dolla was the victim.

According to reports, Dolla was shot at the parkade of the Beverley Center at 3:10 this afternoon. Dolla, whose birth name is Roderick Anthony Burton II, was killed while waiting for a valet with friend and fellow rapper, D.J. Shabbazz.

Two suspects are believed to have fled the scene after the Beverly Center shooting. Witnesses have stated that they saw a female fire shots during the shooting. Later that afternoon, LAPD captured a “person of interest” connected with the case who was attempting to board a plane at LAX airport. TMZ is reporting that the suspect is 20-year-old Aubery Berry.

A motive for the shooting remains unclear. According to Dolla’s publicist, the rapper may have gotten into a dispute with someone at the airport, who later followed him to the mall. The suspects then opened fire, causing patrons at a nearby restaurant to duck for cover.

Prior to his death, Dolla was signed by Konvict, a record label owned by hip-hop star Akon. The 21-year-old rapper was slated to release his first full album later this year.

    what kind of douchebags take a verbal dispute to this level of supposed protection of pride? No wonder society wants to put these animals in a cage…enjoy your life in jail, you dumb street trash. I bet beverly center is real impressed. Time for public hangings of these untermenschen….LA, city of losers

      To the NHC’s, the GC3x’s, Hoova, BPS , Black People and EVERYONE. Im addressing this issue because I’m tired of the BS! I knew Buck/Dolla. He was from ATL and he went hard for that. But he was also like a little bro to Baby T-Money (a well respected MFG ryda). So he spent a lot of time in L.A. I lived on the West side and have kicked it with Dolla many times. He was always humble and respectful. NOT a LOUD MOUTH sh*% STARTER like some others. (listen to his music and you’ll see he wasn’t on no extra-thuggin sh*%). Some of the young MansFields however didn’t think knowing T-money was enough to let an out-of-towner claim Crip, so about 3 years ago they got him without T-Money around and tried to pull his card. They sent 3 guys his age and size to put him on. Well guess what, Buck/Dolla was real and got with all three of um! Ask the Mansfields. (And he knocked out 2Pistols at that award show.) The rumor has it that he also put hands on Aubery Berry in a strip club n Atl.(He was a nuckler.) In THEORY, he couldve done that man the same way that man eventually did him, right? blankuming he was on deck that night. But that wasn’t Buck/Dolla’s heart. The situation wasn’t that major. Disagreements r acceptable among activists. TRANSLATION: We r gonna fight from time to time as young men to come to an order or understanding among ourselves. But we need to give oneanother the respect of either taking a slight loss (remind yourselves that even the GREATS like ALI, HOLLYFIELD AND TYSON HAVE ALL BEEN WHOOPED—a few times! ) or delivering one without feeling the need to erase our opponents whole legacy in COLD BLOODED MURDER. Even if he wasn’t an angel, which he wasn’t. I say that because we know Buck/Dolla was also shot in a previous altercation and he did embrace the street life. But he wasnt murdered because of what he did to deserve it, he was the victim of another mans SHATTERED PRIDE AND HATEFUL ENVY. So for those who don’t know sh*%, next time before you SPEAK BAD on the SOUL OF A DEAD MAN–CUT YOUR OWN THROAT!!! You want people speaking on you or one of yours like that? I knew him, he was genuine. And for those who doubt West L.A. please check the files. I don’t bang anymore but I use to and I promise you West L.A. is full of homicides. So many of mine have been LOST. I also know that the PBG’s were hit with a gang injunction in ‘89, long before the gang injunctions in other hoods. West L.A. been active. But it’s sad when we are arguing over whose hood is worse. That’s like saying “I’m glad my block is deadlier than yours, at least I know I’ll die sooner or get washed in the pen faster.” DONT BE THAT IGNORANT MY FAMILY. A soldier can come from any part of the map. He can also LOSE HIS LIFE TO THE GUN of any coward. WHOEVER IS ON THIS WEBSITE SET-TRIPPIN AND DISRESPECTING THE REAL—YOU NEED TO f#@$kIN STOP! Think about the CHILDREN. Stop disrespecting the G HOMIES that want peace, Stop Disrespecting The Dead Homies that cant get peace and The Lifer Homies who whish they would’ve chose peace and the Wounded Homies also. And PLEASE STOP DISRESPECTING ALEX ALONSO who put this site together so we could discuss our issues openly or annonymously without bullets flying. We should be glad to have this forum speak as men, and not f#@$k it up by making childish DEATH THREATS TO ONEANOTHER. The Bloods and the Crips have SUFFERED GREAT LOSSES and through that pain have been trying to settle their differences for over ten years now. It’s no longer about red vs blue or Gangsta Crip vs NeighborHood crip. It’s about survival. We need unity to survive. We need education to survive and we need to weed out the snakes. So Get with the real PROGRAM. We r out there knocking eachother off as black men, and our future is getting darker. Which one would you prefer, A CELL OR A COFFIN???????? Surenos hate us, police hate us and when i read some of these comments it seems like WE HATE OURSELVES. Wake up. STOP THE HATE. This is just to help shed some light to those disrespecting OUR HOMIE and Our Culture. ONE LIFE TO LIVE, ONE LOVE TO GIVE…………. Buck/Dolla was real and he will be missed. Young Dub Lech

    n May 20, 2009 a user named Jason posted a comment on our Aubrey Berry article about what he calls the truth to what went down this week at the Bervly Center during the death of Dolla. Bel0w is his account.

    Elites TV is not taking responsibility for the truthfulness of the account or exact details. We are only providing the information that was posted on our site this afternoon.

    Media and other bloggers please credit Elites TV and ElitesTV.com.

    Its time to tell the truth about the Rapper Dolla and Aubrey Berry. Please do not question how I know this information, you can choose to withhold this information or be an outlet for this source. Aubrey Berry graduated from Clark Atlanta University last year, he has a perfect credit score, and absolutely no Pryor convictions.

    On May 13th Aubrey Berry went to Platinum 21 ( a strip club in atlanta ) to celebrate his freind coming to Atlanta for the first time. Dolla was with his immediate affiliates ( Mansfeild Crips – Gang ), he persued the same girl Aubrey was dancing with which led to a verbal dispute. Aubrey Berry was?nt giving up that easy, but little did he know the Dolla and his Crip freinds wanted more than just a dance that night, they wanted a fight.

    Aubrey Berry is liscensed to carry a hand gun but asumed the night would be silent so he left it in the car before entering the strip club. Dolla and about 5-7 affiliates rushed toward Mr. Berry and began to jump on him by himself. Aubrey covered his face as much as possible and fell to the ground. It wasnt long before the bouncers started clearing everyone out. Dolla and his freinds started taunting Aubrey Berry with Crip gang signs and blue rags.

    The cops escorted Mr. Berry to his car so he can get to safety. The night ended. Early saturday afternoon, Aubrey Berry left the gym early to go meet with the club owner in LA so he can do a huge party. He went to PF Changs monday with his point of contact in LA to discuss this party, and then thats when it all went down hill. Dolla walks in with 3 of his crip gang members and started to eyeball Aubrey and taunted at him saying ? your on our turf now ?.

    Dolla got on the phone and called for backup, and within 3 minutes the restaurant was filled with the Mansfeild Crip gang members ready to ki*l Aubrey Berry. Mr. Berry quickly rushed out of the restaurant scarred for his life as they followed close behind him. Dolla and 3 other gang members approuch Aubrey and said ?we are going to ki*l you? Aubrey tried to difusse the situation by explaining to them that he doesnt want any problems, they began to reach for there waist with one hand under there shirt, at this point Aubrey Berry was saying to himself ?they are going to ki*l me? Mr. Berry was able to remove his 9mm from his holster before the others and get a close shot at Dolla, unfortionatly he was to close to aim anywhere else but his head.

    Aubrey felt his life was threatened in another city by gang members so he protected himself. I confirmed with other gang members that Dolla was going to ki*l Aubrey Berry so he can get a higher rank in the street gang notoriously known as the Mansfeild Crips. This was an act of self defense and the LAPD is going to withhold the evidence, they wont release the video tapes to Aubrey?s Lawyer nor will they investigate the gang violence. Aubrey Berry was in a state of panic mode so he fled to the airport scared for his life in a big city he knows nothing about, he tried to purchase a plane ticket andrun home to his mom but the police found a man whom fit the description of the shooter, and sure enough it was Aubrey Berry.

    This is the truth, all of this information is 110% accurate. You can choose to use it or you can throw it away but Aubrey Berry?s life is on the line, please help serve justice and peace. Imagine if this was your son or nephew in this situation. Attached, you will find more evidence to support this gang affiliated act of violence.
