Though it appears that Holder was already charged with murder and attempted murder by the District Attorney’s office, the case has been brought before a grand jury. Speculations imply that this move might be an attempt to dodge preliminary hearing, where the judge can determine whether or not there’s enough evidence for a trial.
As it stands, apart from being indicted for one count of murder, Holder is also faced with two counts of attempted murder, two counts of assault with a firearm as well as possession of a firearm by a felon.
Since Nipsey Hussle’s unfortunate death on March 31, the late rapper’s family have refuted any connection with Holder. The shooting was captured via security tape, showing a man in a dark shirt opening fire on Hussle three times in front of his Marathon clothing store. The video isn’t clear enough to give a proper ID on the killer, but it shows several witnesses to be present at the scene.
Stay tuned for the latest news on this case.
