A jury in Los Angeles has acquitted a man in the killing of Atlanta rapper Dolla. The rapper, who was an up-and-coming protege of hip-hop star Akon, was shot last year in the parking garage at the Beverly Center mall in Los Angeles. The “L.A. Times” reports that jurors did not agree with the prosecution that Dolla was a victim of revenge. Instead, they acquitted accused shooter Aubrey Louis Berry on Friday. The two men had been involved in a fight just eleven days prior to the L.A. shooting in Atlanta. Berry testified that the rapper and other men had attacked him in a nightclub. Prior to his acquittal Friday, Berry had been in jail since May 18th, 2009 when he was arrested in connection with the shooting of the hip-hop artist. The jury found Berry to have acted in self-defense after his attorney argued that Dolla had glorified a “gangster” lifestyle. Below is picture of killer…

Dolla, whose real name was Roderick Anthony Burton II, died at age 21. Police did not find a weapon on him at the time of his death, although his song lyrics mentioned that he always carried a gun. In 2007, Dolla signed with Akon’s Konvict Muzik label. Later that year he released his only single to chart on the Billboard Hot 100, “Who The Heck Is That.”

    THIS IS TOTAL BS! I CAN NOT BELIEVE HE GOT OFF.. THERE WAS NO GUN ON DOLLA OR A FIGHT PRIOR TO AS IF HE ACTED IN SELF DEFENSE! HE SHOT THAT BABY AND HE GETS A PAT ON THE BACK.. HIS SONG LYRICS SHOULD HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH IT.. I KNOW ITS 3 SIDES TO EVERY STORY, DOLLA SIDE, THE KILLERS SIDE AND THE TRUTH.. TOO BAD DOLLA CAN NO LONGER SPEAK FOR HIMSELF. HIS PARENTS LOST A CHILD THAT DAY OVER IGNORNACE…. THIS IS NOT A CASE OF JUSTICE AT ALL……

    This is f up for real! I can’t even believe they would let him go just like that, they had testimonies from people that were @ the Beverly Shopping Center! Not only that but, I heard this was caught on tape, what the F I’m in shock. I hope his parents do an appeal or something. The Justice system is all screwed up trust me I know, I have a brother in jail right know doing 12 years & the crime isn’t that bad. He shot Dolla 4 times he let off like 12 rounds they say. HE WAS SET FREE ON ALL COUNTS THAT IS TERRIBLE, ALL I’MMA SAY IS HE BETTER STAY STRAP, CAUSE DOLLA WAS IN A GANG KNOW U DO THE MATH!!!!!!!!!

    R.I.P. DOLLA (JUSTICE 4 DOLLA)
