Victim shot during Nipsey Hussle murder has been arrested for associating with the rapper
A rally for the release of Kerry Lathan has been scheduled for April 13.
One of the men who was injured in the shooting that killed Nipsey Hussle has been arrested on a parole violation, according to TMZ.
Kerry Lathan was released from prison after serving 20 years when Hussle brought him to the Marathon Clothing store to give him some new clothes before he reconnected with his family and friends. Lathan, Hussle and one other person were shot outside the store following a verbal dispute between Hussle and reported shooter Eric Holder. Lathan was treated for a gunshot wound to the back and was later released from the hospital in a wheelchair.
TMZ claims that Lathan was arrested at a halfway house five days following the shooting for “fraternizing with known felons or gang members,” citing Hussle’s ties to the Rolin 60’s Crips. Lathan is currently being held in a downtown L.A. jail where he is awaiting word on whether his parole is being revoked or not.
Officials aren’t commenting on Lathan’s arrest due to the ongoing investigation of Nipsey Hussle’s death.
The Los Angeles Times reports that a rally for Lathan’s release is set to take place Saturday, April 13, in the parking lot across the street from the Marathon Clothing store.
“Gov. Gavin Newsom should order the immediate release of Kerry,” community activist Najee Ali said in a statement to the Times. “His arrest sends a horrible message to parolees trying to integrate into society and for [corrections] officials to label Hussle, who was a Grammy-nominated artist entrepreneur, gentrification fighter and philanthropist, as a known gang member is a slap in the face to his family and our grieving community.”
Friends, family, and fans celebrated the life of Hussle on Thursday during a memorial service at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. YG, Snoop Dogg and Lauren London were among the many people that honored Hussle during his memorial service. On Friday (Apr. 12), the family gathered one last time to pay their respects to Hussle at a private funeral that took place at Forest Lawn Cemetery- Hollywood Hills.
