HOLLYWOOD (CBS) — John Atterberry, the music executive shot Friday during a rampage in Hollywood, has died, according to the Coroner’s office.

Atterberry, 40, was shot in the jaw during the Friday shooting spree. He was taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital where he remained in critical condition until Monday afternoon.

He was declared dead at 4:51 p.m.

The shooter, 26-year-old Tyler Brehm, was shot dead by two plainclothes police officers moments after shooting Atterberry.

Atterberry was identified as a longtime recording industry manager and promoter who has worked with r&b artists like Brandy, the Spice Girls and Jessica Simpson.

His facebook wall immediately filled up with friends expressing grief. To a man and woman, most included “RIP John” and talked about how much they would miss him.

Brehm hit at least three people as he emptied a handgun into cars, and fired wildly from the middle of Vine Street.

Two passing motorists were also hit by bullets that had passed through their car door or window, police said. One was grazed by a bullet in the thigh, the other — a 77-year-old man — suffered glass cuts to his face.

Brehm and his girlfriend of four years had broken up last week although police have yet said if that was the reason he went on his rampage.

    Tell me that I’m not the only one who feels an unavoidable, situational IRONY in the death of this DEATH ROW RECORDS “executive”.

    He was shot by a millennial, his target audience, the generation brought up on gangstarap, thuggery, violence and crime glorification, hip hop blunt culture.

    Live and create by and for the sword…

    Just amazing to me. But no one else seems to see this.

    And add to that the “shock” fro students over at the LA Film School who go on to make violent movies.

      Yo Man, I told my girl the same thing NULL. Deathrow Records etc. I was wondering how many people he was responsible for being Murdered, Shoot or assaulted? You hit it right on the nose and although I’m sad to hear this story. I thought the same thing you just said…
      Live by the sword, die by the sword.
      Promote death and violence, then death and violence will probably come knocking on your door.
      Promote evil, then evil will find you!

      Promote good and good things will happen for you!

    Funny how when a white person commits a terrible crime like this, the comments are never racist. Had it been a black, hispanic or asian the boards would have been riddled with nasty comments. Yay white people! Feels good doesen’t it? Truly despicable.

    1. Whisky…Tango… Foxtrot says:

      Hey what was wrong with this white guy? Did he falloff the meth wagon? Did he get his trailer foreclosed on? Did his cousin breakup with him? There “V”, are you Happy?

    2. Rob says:

      V – Even it he was black, how could it be racist, he shot at PASSING CARS, not passing blacks. GET A CLUE IDIOT.
