HOT 107.9′s DJ Beestroh wounded, charged with aggravated assault in shootout with cops at local nightclub
A popular radio DJ has been charged with aggravated assault following an alleged “shootout” with DeKalb police at a local nightclub early Monday.
Ronald Robinson, 39, aka DJ Beestroh, was shot in the lower abdomen by police at the Velvet Room, according to a source who witnessed the melee. Robinson is in stable condition, DeKalb police Capt. Stephen Fore told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Beestroh was spinning at a listening party for rapper Rick Ross, hosted by Sean “Puff Daddy” Combs at the Velvet Room, a nightclub in the 3300 block of Chamblee Tucker Road.
“For whatever unknown reasons, it appears that this DJ who was involved in the shooting with some others turned and shot at the officers, and that’s when they returned fire,” said DeKalb Public Safety Director Cedric Alexander, according to the AJC. But friends (who were at the scene) are telling a different story.
Def Jam Records held a listening party for rap artist Rick Ross‘s new album Mastermind at the Colony Theater on Miami Beach.
