Wow…the plot thickens…now the lawyer of the man who shot and killed Akon’s artist Dolla, says he was being threatened?…..The AP reports:

[Aubrey Louis] Berry’s attorney, Howard R. Price, said his client was acting in self-defense when he killed Dolla, 21, and fired at two other people.
Price said Berry feared for his life after he and Dolla,
whose real name is Roderick Anthony Burton II, had an altercation at an Atlanta nightclub earlier this month…

Price said it was a coincidence that the two men ended up in the same city (Los Angeles), the same restaurant (P.F. Chang’s China Bistro) on the same day and at the same time. He said Burton, who was arrested at Los Angeles International Airport after the killing with a loaded 9mm handgun and a plane ticket, was trying to leave the city because he feared for his safety.

Price accused Burton and his entourage of being affiliated with the Crips gang and said that is one of the reasons Berry feared for his life. He said Berry told him that Burton threatened him in the restroom and followed him to the valet area and that’s why he opened fire.

He said videotape shot at the restaurant will corroborate Berry’s story, but that there is no video of the actual shooting. He said Berry, a music promoter from Atlanta, was at the restaurant on Monday for a business meeting.”
