John Atterberry, the record executive who was shot during a violent rampage in Hollywood last week has died. 26-year old Tyler Brehm is said to have fired approximately 20 rounds in the air and at cars while screaming he wanted to die. Sadly, Atterberry was caught in the crossfire and consequently shot in the face and torso. Brehm was later killed by officers who happened to be in the area.

Atterberry died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center a little before 5 P.M. on Monday.

Acts including the Spice Girls, Jessica Simpson and others have worked with Atterberry.

Atterberry had been a vice president of Death Row Records, the label that produced albums for many of the most prominent names in West Coast hip hop, including Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and Tupac Shakur.

Courtney Barnes, a publicist for Smokey Robinson and Ron Artest, told Billboard magazine that she was shocked to hear the news, saying Atterberry was “a really nice guy.”
