Dolla, a rapper whose real name is Roderick Anthony Burton II, was shot in the head as he and several other people stood near the center's La Cienega Boulevard entrance, according to police, witnesses and Dolla's publicist, Sue Vannasing. A friend of the rapper's who was at the Beverly Center and a Los Angeles Police Department official also confirmed the victim's identity to The Times.
Burton, 21, arrived at LAX from Atlanta earlier in the day and went to the Beverly Center to shop, Vannasing said. After the shooting, Burton was taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center a few blocks from the mall, where he died, police said.
The LAPD has not announced a motive for the attack or identified any suspects. Detectives are questioning a woman they detained at the scene and a man who allegedly drove from the mall to LAX in a rented silver Mercedes SUV.
About an hour after the shooting, the LAPD issued a bulletin for a 20-year-old man considered a "person of interest" in the shooting. Los Angeles Airport Police officers spotted a man fitting the description in the ticketing lobby of Terminal 1.

Another day, another Dolla.
This is a crazy crime. This “Dolla” kid isn’t even old enough to have a proper mustache: he’s a beardless youth. Now he’s a dead beardless youth.
This cRap gangsta culture makes no sense at all. Not on any level.
must have dis respected somrone.
Barry let this happen. Barry hates rapping people.
It’s sad that this young man is dead. It’s also sad to contemplate the amount of harm he might have done if he’d remained alive, and the kind of life he was leading to result in this predictable outcome.
What a waste.
Killed by a drive-by music critic.
With a name like “Roderick Anthony Burton II”, he could have gone far in life. With a name like “Dolla”, he didn’t get very far at all.
We make our choices...
Wouldnt it be funny if the killer got a Dolla Pardon? bada bing
I have come to the conclusion, after having to interface with these types for the past three years, that most of them are human in genetic material only and in their heads they are without humanity.
Evil has nearly taken an entire race of humans and I have a hard time mourning for them or their troubles.
yawn, maybe if it happened a couple of hundred thousand times in one day life in this country would be a lot less dangerous.
Did a search for his lyrics, and as expected they’re too vile to be posted on FR.
Gangsta rap (all rap!) is one of the main reasons other counties and cultures despise America.
See, gangsta rap IS good for something.
