Nipsey Hussle Knew the Man Accused of Killing Him, 👮 Police Chief Says; Suspect in Custody

  |   Hollywood

Nipsey Hussle and the man suspected of killing him knew each other, and the shooting appears to be the product of a personal dispute, Los Angeles police Chief Michel Moore told reporters Tuesday morning.

Moore declined to elaborate on the feud between the two, saying he didn't want to jeopardize any potential prosecution, but he said the suspect -- who has been identified via surveillance video and witnesses as 29-year-old Eric Holder -- approached Nipsey and others multiple times, engaging them in conversation. The crime happened about 3:20 p.m. Sunday,

At one point, Holder returned with a handgun and "purposely and repeatedly fired" at the men, injuring two of them and killing the rapper, he said.

The suspect in the killing of rapper was captured by California cops Tuesday afternoon, according to a report.

Eric Holder was taken into custody around 1:30 p.m. local time in Bellflower, Calif., a city about 20 miles southeast of Los Angeles, CBS Los Angeles reported, citing Los Angeles County Sheriff’s deputies.

Though the rapper was a member of an arm of the Crips street gang and police believe Holder belongs to a gang as well, Moore declined to specify any gang affiliation and said the dispute between the two does not appear gang-related.
