The Los Angeles Police Department have identified a suspect who they believe fatally shot Nipsey Hussle on Sunday (March 31). According to a tweet from the LAPD HQ account, a man named Eric Holder is wanted for the homicide.
“Eric Holder is wanted for Homicide in the shooting of Nipsey Hussle,” the tweet reads. “He was last seen in a 2016 white 4 door Chevy Cruze CA license plate 7RJD742. Anyone with information related to his whereabouts or this deadly shooting is urged to contact South Bureau Homicide at 323-786-5100.
In the accompanying news release, the LAPD explains the man they think is Holder walked up to three men standing outside of the Marathon Clothing store on Crenshaw and Slauson. He then started shooting, striking all three men.
As previously reported, the alleged suspect actually returned a second time to continue firing. He then fled southbound through an adjacent alley to the awaiting vehicle, a 2016 white 4-door Chevy Cruze. The surveillance video obtained by TMZ corroborates the account.
The two other men who were also shot were rushed to the hospital where they were listed in stable condition. Nipsey was pronounced dead soon after he arrived to the hospital by ambulance.
