Suspect Identified in Dolla Murder

5/18/2009 11:17 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

DollaA man has been arrested in connection with the shooting death of rapper Dolla -- we've learned he goes by the name Aubrey Berry.

Here's what went down. Sources say after the shooting, the LAPD put out an alert that the suspect may have fled to the Los Angeles International Airport in an attempt to fly out of the city.

LAX police spotted a man who matched the description, sitting in the lobby area of Terminal 1. Cops approached Berry and almost immediately he said he knew why cops were there and then raised his hands and told them he had a 9 millimeter handgun in his waistband.

Berry (we have not confirmed if this is his legal name or an alias) -- a 23-year-old African American male -- was taken into custody.

No great loss. Unfortunately, the taxpayers will pay thousands to try and incarcerate the subject, I'm sick of these loser gangsta thugs with their stupid tatoos and baggy pants with underwear showing.

you people are rude    

how can you people be so rude to say "no great loss" and all of that. that is seriously so rude. somebody died,it does not matter who it was that died but SOMEBODY will be affected by their death. people have family, people have friends and yet you're being rude. what if you died and somebody said OH ITS NO GREAT LOSS. seriously get over yourselves thinking you're so great and high up above this poor kid who was trying to make it somewhere in life and tragically lost his life. think about what you say seriously. it's people like you that make me disgusted at the human race.

Isn't being a gangster rapper glamorous? I guess that teardrop next to his left eye gets to go on somebody else now, huh?

Party 'till you die!    

Dear thugs, please have some sort of funeral plans in place, so the taxpayers don't have to flip the bill to bury your ass when you die! But thanks for helping clean up society by killing each other!

The people who use their wretched lives to make hurtful and mean spirited comments about Dolla "lifestyle" are clearly out of touch with the culture of his music, so why even bother passing judgment? He just died a few hours ago and people are like who cares as if his life wasn't taken away in such a senseless and violent way.....he is someone’s child that was LOVE AND WILL BE MISSED!

You should really pray that the same fate doesn't befall your own children one day, because senseless acts of violence can happen to anyone, rich and famous or working class and average. His mother is going to have to bury her ONLY SON... I care because it's sad. Someone being shot in the HEAD is sad.

Karma is a beast and a lot of you need to be preparing for her bite. RIP DOLLA
