LAPD has identified a suspect in Nipsey Hussle's murder case
A warrant has been issued for 29-year-old Eric Holder.
LAPD has identified a suspect in connection to Nipsey Hussle’s murder on Sunday (March 31).
29-year-old Eric Holder is now wanted for homicide and a warrant has been issued for his arrest. Law enforcement officials confirmed the news along with a photo of Holder on Monday evening (April 1). Holder, also known by his street name, “Shitty,” was last seen entering a 2016 model of a white four-door Chevy Cruze with a California license plate. Police believe he escaped from the crime scene with help from a female driver after fatally shooting Hussle outside of his clothing store in Los Angeles.
Hussle and Holder had a “tense exchange” about snitching to the police sometime before the shooting, according to TMZ‘s sources. Holder allegedly felt “disrespected” by Hussle’s accusation that he was an informant and returned to his place of business with a gun. He shot Hussle and two other individuals who survived the ambush.
On Monday, the L.A. County Medical Coroner confirmed the Los Angeles native died from gunshot wounds to his head and torso. He was 33 years old. Hussle is survived by two children: a daughter named Emani from a previous relationship and a 2-year-old son named Kross with actress Lauren London.
His shocking death has been felt throughout the hip hop community and has sparked a public outcry over gun violence. Just one day before he was gunned down, Hussle was set to meet with the LAPD to discuss ways to combat gang violence. “Many of us will join together to stop what ever caused [you], and so many other tragic unnecessary killings,” Los Angeles Police Commissioner Steve Soboroff tweeted in the wake of his passing.
Following an outpour of tributes from his peers, including reactions from Snoop Dogg, The Game, LeBron James, Drake, and 2 Chainz, a vigil for the late rapper took place in his hometown on Monday to celebrate his life and legacy.
