Update: Nipsey Hussle’s suspected killer, Eric Holder, has been formally charged with the murder of the 33-year-old West Coast superstar. We’ll keep you updated as the story develops.

According to CBS Los Angeles, Eric Holder was taken into custody this afternoon (April 2), two days after Nipsey was fatally shot outside his clothing store in south L.A.

The Los Angeles Police Department released a statement early this morning that shared some details surrounding the shooting:

On March 31, 2019 around 3:20 p.m. [PST] three male adults were standing in front of a business in a strip mall in the 3400 block of West Slauson Blvd. The suspect walked up to the men and fired numerous shots at them. The victims were struck and fell to the ground.

The suspect ran southbound through an adjacent alley to a waiting vehicle. The suspect entered the passenger side of the vehicle and fled the area. The vehicle is a 2016 Chevy Cruze, white four doors, CA license plate 7Rjd742. The vehicle was driven by an unidentified female.

A press conference where LAPD Chief Michel Moore and LA Mayor Eric Garcetti confirmed that 29-year-old Eric Holder is the main suspect in Nipsey Hussle’s killing.

“People that were at that scene or have information from people who were at that scene…we ask that you call [us] day and night,” Moore said. “We’re not done gathering evidence in this horrific shooting.”

“I am confident that he is watching this…I ask him to surrender,” Moore later said.

Original Story: The Los Angeles Police Department has identified the suspect in the murder of rapper Nipsey Hussle.

29-year-old Eric Holder is now wanted for the homicide of Hussle who was gunned down outside of his clothing store in Hyde Park, Los Angeles on the afternoon of March 31. Two other bystanders were also injured during the incident and are currently in serious condition.

LA Police Department has publicized a photo of Holder on its social media. The attached statement established that Holder, a local resident, fled the scene of the crime in a 2016 Chevy Cruze. The getaway car was waiting in an adjacent alley and driven by an unidentified female.

A news conference to be led by LAPD Chief Michel Moore will be held on Tuesday morning for more updates.
