    LOS ANGELES (AFP) – Up-and-coming rap artist Dolla has been shot dead outside a landmark Los Angeles shopping mall, friends and family of the slain musician were reported as saying.

    The Atlanta-based musician was gunned down at the entrance to the Beverly Center, a popular shopping haunt for tourists, at around 3:00 pm (2200 GMT), the Los Angeles Times quoted Dolla's publicist as saying.
    Los Angeles police have refused to confirm the identity of the 21-year-old victim, who died at Cedars Sinai Medical Center after being shot.

    LAPD officer Karen Rayner said a person of interest had been detained at Los Angeles International Airport later Monday and was being quizzed.
    But Dolla's publicist Sue Vannasing told the Times that her client -- whose legal name is Roderick Anthony Burton II -- was the victim.

    Vannasing said the rapper had been shot in the head while he and another rapper, DJ Shabbazz, waited outside after shopping at the mall.
    Vannasing told the Times Dolla had got into a fight with another passenger on a flight from Atlanta to Los Angeles earlier Monday but did not know if that incident was related to the shooting at the Beverly Center.
    Los Angeles Airport Police officers identified a male passenger matching the description at an airport ticketing desk who was later discovered to be armed.

    Chicago-born Dolla had signed a deal with rap star Akon's Konvict Muzik, with singles including "Feelin Myself" and "I'm Tore Up."

    Mkuu Ab_Tichaz, huyo mtoto maisha yake toka alivyozaliwa yanaumiza roho vibaya mno:

    "According to his MySpace page, Dolla was born in Chicago, Illinois. His twin sister died at birth because of complications from an enlarged heart.

    The family moved to Atlanta after Dolla's father committed suicide while he, then 5, and another sister watched from their parents' bed, the Web page said. Dolla began composing rhymes in elementary school and decided to pursue a career in music."

    Suspect Arrested in Shooting Death Of Rapper

    A man has been arrested in connection with the shooting death of rapper Dolla -- we've learned he goes by the name Aubery Berry.

    Here's what went down. Sources say after the shooting, the LAPD put out an alert that the suspect may have fled to the Los Angeles International Airport in an attempt to fly out of the city.

    LAX police spotted a man who matched the description, sitting in the lobby area of Terminal 1. Cops approached Berry and almost immediately he said he knew why cops were there and then raised his hands and told them he had a 9 millimeter handgun in his waistband.

    Berry (we have not confirmed if this is his legal name or an alias) -- a 20-year-old African American male -- was taken into custody.

    R.I.P. I knew one song by him which featured T-pain called "Who the Heck is That". It's sad not only because of the way he died but also his very young age(21).
