Suspect Arrested in Fatal Shooting of Rapper Nipsey Hussle, LAPD Says

Share

"Eric Holder, the suspected killer of Nipsey Hussle, has been arrested and is in police custody", the LAPD tweet read.

While both Hussle and Holder have ties to street gangs, the dispute between them was personal and did not involve gang activity, Moore said.

Hussle was shot in the head and body and died at a hospital, according to police and the coroner's office.

Two other injuries were serious and 15 were considered non-life threatening.

His arrest comes one day after police named him as a suspect in the slaying of the Grammy-nominated artist's killing.

Late Monday, about 300 people gathered around a candlelight memorial in The Marathon Clothing parking lot, feet from where the rapper was shot, when a person with a gun spurred the mourners to take off in every direction, police said.

Moore also provided new information about a vigil at that site Monday night, which devolved into chaos after a person in the crowd pulled out a handgun, allegedly to show it off.

UPDATE 4/2/2019 5:00pm ET: The Los Angeles County Sheriff's Department confirmed to CBS2 that Holder has been captured in the Bellflower area around 1:30pm PT.

They added that Holder walked up to three men standing in front of the store and "fired numerous shots at them" and subsequently fled "through an adjacent alley to a waiting vehicle" which was driven by a female who hasn't yet been identified.

The L.A. Times reported that the woman earlier turned herself in. The chief said a person tried to disarm the person, leading to the stampede.

"The community is the one that is helping us solve this case", Moore said.

Hussle's debut studio album, "Victory Lap", was nominated for Best Rap Album at this year's Grammy Awards.
