Subject: Rapper Dolla Killed in LA Mall Shooting

Written By: LyricBoy on 05/19/09 at 9:15 pm

LOS ANGELES (AP) - A publicist for rapper Dolla says the Atlanta-based performer has been killed at an upscale mall in Los Angeles after a dispute with another man.  :\'(

Publicist Sue Vannasing told the Los Angeles Times and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution that Dolla was shot Monday afternoon at the Beverly Center in Los Angeles.

Police and coroner’s officials have not yet confirmed the victim’s identity.

Vannasing said Dolla - real name Roderick Anthony Burton II - and another rapper who goes by the name D.J. Shabbazz were waiting at a valet stand after a shopping trip when a gunman shot Dolla.
Police say a person of interest with a gun was detained hours later at Los Angeles International Airport and is being questioned.

Call me hopelessly naive, but what reason does anybody have for bringing a gun into an upscale shopping mall in the first place?
???

To handle this kind of incident.  Somebody pulls a knife on me, then I'm gonna whip out my gun and the skies will be raining lead down upon them.  :P

Upscale mall, indeed.

Glock?  Egads, man how gauche.

Nope, for me it's a good old reliable Colt 1911 .45 caliber.  Does not hold as many rounds as a Glock, but after taking six .45 slugs, the meaning of "overkill" is apparent.

that may not be far from the truth, but then it could be a ongoing feud like the Hatfields/McCoys type thing. I think looking someone directly in the eyes is a challenge in prison. live by the sword and you pretty much guaranteed to die by it.

I like the highlighted Bad ^  ;D  I gotta give Mario Puzo credit for that style. in his novel The Sicilian, I believe that was the weapon of choice for close up assasinations or hits.

After a few years in the joint, one sword starts to look very much like another!

The motive hadn't been figured out yet as of Thursday--they are investigating it.

My opinion of his music aside, it's always sad to see a person die an untimely death. . .

of course these two are worse
