(Newser) – Up-and-coming Atlanta-based rapper Dolla was shot dead in the parking garage of LA's Beverly Center mall yesterday, the Los Angeles Times reports. The 21-year-old musician, shot in the head, had arrived in the city earlier that day. A suspect fled the scene in a silver Mercedes and was later arrested, still armed with a gun, in the ticketing area of Los Angeles International Airport, officials said. The shooting was reportedly triggered by an argument in the mall.
