Earlier today, a suspect was named in the tragic killing of rapper Nipsey Hussle, and now the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has confirmed to CBSLA that the man, 29-year-old Eric Holder, was caught by deputies. The article reads:
A man suspected of gunning down musician Nipsey Hussle over a personal dispute has been captured in the Bellflower area.
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed to CBS2 that 29-year-old Eric Holder was caught by deputies sometime before 1:30 p.m. in the 9900 block of Artesia Boulevard. Los Angeles police told CBS2 they were responding to confirm the suspect’s identity as Holder.
Hussle, 33, was killed in a triple-shooting Sunday afternoon in a South Los Angeles which left two other men wounded.
LAPD Chief Michel Moore told reporters Tuesday that Holder, a gang member, approached Hussle and the other men he was with several times Sunday and spoke with them. Holder then returned with a handgun and opened fire.
“Mr. Holder walked up on multiple occasions and engaged in a conversation with Nipsey and the others that were there. He left and subsequently came back armed with a handgun, and purposefully and repeatedly fired, striking and killing Nipsey Hussle.”
One of the injured men was hospitalized, but the other was treated at the scene and refused to be transported.
