Police arrest suspect in fatal shooting of Nipsey Hussle

Octopizzo and Nas

The man allegedly confronted the rapper and community activist over a "personal matter" before fatally shooting the 33-year-old and wounding two other men at a South Los Angeles strip mall Sunday, according to police. The LAPD previously named Holder as the sole shooter wanted for homicide in the case.

Nipsey, real name Ermias Asghedom, was gunned down outside of his Marathon Store on Sunday afternoon at around 3.20pm.

Holder opened fire, hitting Hussle and two other men who survived, police said.

Moore told reporters that Holder and Hussle knew each other, but Moore did not disclose any details about the nature of the dispute.

Nineteen people were hospitalized after a stampede at a memorial at Hussle's store on Monday night. I'm lost without you We are lost without you babe I have no words'.




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 absolute worst way to pay back Nipsey's loss.is with more violence".

One of the critically injured was struck by a vehicle and the second suffered a "penetrating, traumatic injury with cause unknown", Stewart said, although Moore said someone was apparently stabbed during the melee.

"I could not believe it", Moore said. Past year he had a mainstream breakthrough with his album "Victory Lap", a major label debut that got him a Grammy nomination.

Before his death, Nipsey, a member of the Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips, had requested a meeting to discuss ways to mitigate gang violence, Los Angeles police Commissioner Steve Soboroff said Tuesday, sharing an email he received from the rapper and Jay-Z's Roc Nation.
