Former Death Row Records V.P. and music executive John Atterberry was shot three time in the face and neck by an armed pedestrian while driving through the intersection of Hollywood and Vine in Hollywood, CA. He is listed in critical condition at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.
Crazed gunman, Tyler Brehm, 26, shot and injured three drivers before police arrived and returned fire --- killing Brehm after he unloaded about 20 rounds from his .40 caliber handgun into oncoming traffic. Witnesses say he was walking down the street shouting he wanted to die then started shooting indiscriminately into cars. The other victims were treated for minor injuries and released.
According to report,s Brehm had been distraught after a recent break-up with his girlfriend of over four years. Christina Mesropian, a neighbor of the couple, said Brehm never really got over the break-up and feels it may have been what made him suicidal.
She told KNBC news, "When you walk down the street shooting at people that's probably when you expect that you are going to die, he was most probably asking for it."
In addition to high-powered career at Death Row, Atterberry is a founder Mergela Records and Consulting, helping to create music publishing company Infusion Music Group. He's also worked with Brandy, The spice Girls and Jessica Simpson.
