Record executive John Atterberry died Monday (December 12) three days after suffering gunshot wounds when a deranged man went on a shooting rampage in Hollywood, California.


Atterberry, 40, was walking out of a Bank of America at Sunset Blvd and Vine when 26-year old Tyler Brehm walked up to him and shot him in the face and chest. Brehm then walked into the middle of the street and started shooting indiscriminately at cars passing by.


Brehm was shot dead by two plainclothes police officers shortly after shooting Atterberry, who was rushed to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles where he clung to life for 72 hours before passing away Monday.

Atterberry was Vice President of Death Row Records during the time the label was home to Tupac Shakur, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre and Tha Dogg Pound. He later went on to work with artists like Michael Jackson, Christina Aguilera, the Spice Girls and Brandy.

Atterberry's sister Cynthia left a message on her younger brother's Facebook page mourning his loss.


Today I lost my JOHN, my baby, my guardian angel, my protector, my little brother at 3:00 p.m.


"I do not understand now nor will I ever is why such a senseless act of violence was inflicted upon such a GOD-fearing, kind, compassionate, loving individual," she wrote.

Police still aren't sure what sparked the shooting's, but did say Brehm had recently broken up with his girlfriend.
