Suspect Identified In Nipsey Hussle Shooting

Nipsey Hussle Memorial Results In Injuries As Mourners Start A Stampede

Two days after the murder of Grammy-nominated rapper Nipsey Hussle, Los Angeles police have arrested a primary suspect, reports CBS Los Angeles.

The LAPD say that 29-year-old Eric Holder, an LA resident, is wanted for homicide in the shooting of Hussle, real name Ermias Joseph Asghedom.

Police said earlier that Holder was still at large, having fled the crime scene in a auto driven by an unidentified woman.

"Mr. Holder walked up on multiple occasions and engaged in a conversation with Nipsey and the others that were there", Police chief Michael Moore said. As news of his death spread overnight Sunday, community members and fans of the Grammy-nominated artist created a memorial at the site of the shooting. The vehicle is a 2016 Chevy Cruze, white four doors, CA license plate 7RJD742.

The crowd fled, he said, after someone at the vigil produced a handgun and another person tried to disarm the individual.

In that chaos, one person was stabbed, the chief said, though it's unclear who was responsible.

"The majority of the injuries are minor and as a result of trampling injuries from the crowd", she said. Authorities urged that Hussle's killing not be followed by more violence. He was pronounced dead at the hospital, while the other two men were in stable condition.

Authorities had no information to indicate Hussle's death was related to gang activity.

Two other people were injured in the shooting incident but survived, according to a Los Angeles Police Department spokesman.

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

Hussle "was a tireless advocate for the young people of this city and of this world", he said, "to lift them up with the possibility of not being imprisoned by where you come from or past mistakes but the possibility of what comes in the future".

The Marathon Clothing store sits near West Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard.

The LAPD is working with community leaders to clean the area, protect the memorial and make it safe for visitors, Moore said. Soboroff on Tuesday morning read for reporters the email he received from Hussle in February requesting the meeting.
