LOS ANGELES, California (CNN) — A 21-year-old up-and-coming rapper was fatally shot Monday afternoon at a popular mall in Los Angeles.
Dolla, whose real name is Roderick Anthony Burton II, was shot in the head about 3:10 p.m. at the Beverly Center, his publicist said.
Police later detained a person at the Los Angeles International Airport, said city police spokeswoman Karen Raynar.
Further details were not immediately available about the shooting.
Dolla, who was based in Atlanta, Georgia, was in Los Angeles recording his debut album.
He caught the attention of multiplatinium R&B singer Akon when the then-12-year-old Dolla was performing with friends at showcases around Atlanta. (via)
This here is pretty crazy too:
Bol/Byron Crawford is mad outta control.
Imagine if he had TWEETED that he was going to the mall, now THAT would have been crazy. Maybe then one of his murders would have been one of his twitter followers?
