Panic Erupts at Nipsey Hussle Vigil, 19 injured, Murder Suspect Identified

Monday night LAPD released the name and photo of the man they believe shot and killed rapper Nipsey Hussle.

The suspect has been identified as 29-year-old Eric Holder of Los Angeles. He was last seen driving a 2016 four-door Chevy Cruze.


Police believe that he walked up to Nipsey and two other men at about 3:20 p.m. on Sunday, in front of Nipsey's Crenshaw District Marathon clothing store, and shot all three. Nipsey died of his gunshot wounds after he was taken to the hospital. Another man was also transported to a hospital, but the third victim declined medical treatment. (LAPD HQ Twitter)
