Nipsey Hussle: LAPD Releases Photo of Suspect Wanted In The Shooting

The Los Angeles Police Department has released the name of a suspect in the shooting death of rapper Nipsey Hussle.

Police have identified the suspect as Eric Holder, tweeting, “Eric Holder is wanted for Homicide in the shooting of Nipsey Hussle. 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.”

Hussle died from gunshot wounds of the head and torso, the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner said Monday.

The rapper’s autopsy was completed Monday and his death was certified a homicide.

Hussle, the 33-year-old rapper, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom, was shot multiple times outside his South Los Angeles apparel store, The Marathon Clothing, around 3:20 p.m. PDT Sunday and pronounced dead at the hospital.

By Monday, hundreds of people had gathered in front of the store to pay their respects. A memorial of candles, flowers and paintings took shape, and some of Hussle’s songs blared through speakers. But after nightfall the crowd grew violent, and a stabbing contributed to a massive stampede, with at least 19 people injured.

On Tuesday morning Police Chief Michel R. Moore “will address the surge in violence in the city of Los Angeles and there will be an update on the murder investigation of Nipsey Hussle,” according to the LAPD’s website.
