Los Angeles, CA, United States (4E) – The Los Angeles Police Department has identified and arrested the suspect behind the killing of rapper Nipsey Hussl. On Tuesday afternoon, the LAPD said that Eric Holder has been apprehended and is now in police custody.
The 29-year-old suspect was caught by LAPD deputies before 1:30 p.m in Artesia Boulevard in Los Angeles. Holder was considered a person of interest due to a personal dispute he had with Hussle prior to his death. He is being held by the police without bail.
According to LAPD Chief Michel Moore, Holder is a member of a gang and he, together with other men, spoke Hussle several times on Sunday before returning with a handgun and shot the rapper as well as two other victims.
“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,” Moore told reporters, CBS Los Angeles reported.
Moore added that Holder appeared to have some personal dispute with Hussle, but the details of such were not disclosed.
After the shooting, Holder then left the crime scene in a 2016 Chevrolet Cruz which was driven by a still unidentified woman. Police investigators are still searching for the female getaway driver.
Meanwhile, Hussle’s longtime girlfriend, Lauren London, has broken her silence regarding the rapper’s death and the subsequent arrest of the alleged gunman.
In a heartfelt Instagram post, London said she’s “completely lost” in the wake of Hussle’s death. She described the Grammy-nominated artist as his best friend and protector.
According to USA Today, the couple started dating in 2013 and have a son together named Kross Asghedom.
