Nipsey Hussle Shooting Suspect Possibly Apprehended

The Los Angeles Police Department has identified a suspect in the shooting death of rapper and community advocate, Nipsey Hussle.

Hussle and the suspect, 29-year-old Eric Holder, knew each other, Chief Michel Moore said, but he did not reveal how they were acquainted or offer any details about the dispute.

Hussle was fatally shot on Sunday outside Marathon Clothing, the store he founded to help rebuild his troubled South Los Angeles neighbourhood, police said.

After shooting Hussle and two other men who survived, Holder fled in a waiting auto driven by a woman, the police chief said.

Moore says Holder fled in a vehicle driven by an unidentified woman. Authorities urged that Hussle's killing not be followed by more violence.

The woman who drove the getaway auto for the man who shot and killed Nipsey Hussle is facing serious charges too if she doesn't turn herself in soon.

At least two people were critically injured during the stampede and taken to the hospital, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

An autopsy completed Monday showed that Hussle, 33, died after being shot in the head and torso. Two other people suffered serious injuries and 15 had injuries that were considered non-life threatening.

The information regarding Holder comes mere hours after a vigil was held for the rapper, born Ermias Asghedom outside of the shopping strip he owned.
