LA police identify suspect in Nipsey Hussle murder

Nipsey Hussle shooting captured by surveillance video

Nipsey, who was born Ermias Asghedom, was fatally shot outside of his The Marathon Clothing Company in Los Angeles' Hyde Park neighborhood Sunday afternoon.

Police have identified a 33-year-old suspect in the Hussle shooting as Eric Holder.

LAPD Chief Michel Moore confirmed on Twitter rumors of shots fired during the vigil "do not appear to be accurate". I respect and admire your career path and what you did for the neighborhood.

Moore urged Holder to go to a police station and turn himself in.

Police still don't know if the shooting was gang related, but there are gang undertones there, one source said. "Nipsey is an example of any life lost is a life too many".

Mayor Eric Garcetti said Hussle's killing occurred during an upsurge of gun violence that followed significant decreases, and announced plans to deploy an array of resources to roll it back.

The police chief and the president of the city's Police Commission had been scheduled to meet with Hussle on Monday to discuss the relationship between the police force and the inner city.

The Post reports that she brought the claims to the NYPD this past Thursday, which consider her claims credible and "believable". Mavericks owner Mark Cuban told the Post via email that the club has been instructed by federal authorities not to comment.

The chief said he was devastated when he learned that Hussle had been killed.

An emotional Soboroff read from the email Hussle sent asking for the meeting. "Their work is vital". On Monday, the crime scene tape was lifted by authorities, and fans were allowed to congregate in the parking lot with a police presence still close by. It is unclear what, if anything, caused the stampede.

A spokesperson for the Los Angeles Fire Department told the paper that at least 19 injured people, two in critical condition, were transported by first responders. The others suffered non-life-threatening injuries, the fire department said.

Three days prior to Nipsey's murder, he was on set in Inglewood with John Legend and DJ Khaled shooting a music video for their collaboration "Higher".

An autopsy completed Monday showed that Hussle, 33, died after being shot in the head and torso.

Holder is a 29-year-old LA resident, known as "Shitty Cuz" or "Fly Mac", suspected to have ties to the streets and a wannabe rapper, according to Heavy.

Following Hussle's tragic and untimely death, celebrities from both the sports and entertainment world took to social media to pay tribute to the late "Victory Lap" rapper.
