RIP John Atterberry

Music executive John Atterberry has passed away after being shot in the face Friday in Hollywood. He was 40 years old.

In his lifetime, Atterberry was a successful manager and promoter, involved with artists like Brandy, the Spice Girls and Jessica Simpson.

He was in his car on Friday near the intersection of Sunset Blvd. and Vine St. when 26-year-old Tyler Brehm shot him in a “random shooting”. 

He was taken to Cedars-Sinai hospital, where he remained in critical condition until he was pronounced dead this evening at 4:51 p.m.

John Atterberry was very active as a humanitarian who was said to be “extremely motivated to change the world.” 

Blue Sky is keeping the Atterberry family close to our hearts this evening as we mourn with Hollywood the loss of another wonderfully brilliant mind who was taken too soon.
