DEKALB COUNTY, Ga. -

A popular Atlanta radio personality was shot by DeKalb County police early Monday morning after he allegedly fired a shot at officers.

DeKalb County police identified the suspect Monday afternoon as 39-year-old Ronald Robinson.

Robinson goes by the air name "Beestroh" for Atlanta radio station Hot 107.9.

The shooting happened at the Velvet Room club located on Chamblee-Tucker Road in DeKalb County, during an album release party for rapper Rick Ross.

According to DeKalb police, the shooting happened at around 3 a.m. after a dispute between Robinson who was working as a DJ at the party and another man in the club's back parking lot.

Police say when they attempted to intervene in the altercation, Robinson began waving his gun toward them.

Police say officers shot the DJ in his leg.

DeKalb County Public Safety Deputy Chief Operating Officer Cedric Alexander told FOX 5 at the scene Robinson ran back into the club, where he was arrested.

Medics transported Robinson to Grady Memorial Hospital where he remained Monday afternoon.

The officers involved in this shooting have been placed on administrative leave pending an investigation, which is standard procedure.

Robinson faces two counts of aggravated assault on a police officer.
