Chief: Rapper Nipsey Hussle killing involved personal dispute

Law enforcement sources told The Times that the suspect, identified as 29-year-old Eric Holder, had some type of personal dispute with Hussle that culminated in the shooting.

Hussle was fatally shot Sunday afternoon outside his South Los Angeles clothing store.

The chief says the attacker had repeatedly walked up to the artist and spoke to him, and then returned with a gun and opened fire.

The cops sent a message to the woman witnesses said drove the getaway auto, warning she could face charges of aiding and abetting, or worse, conspiracy to commit murder.

Holder and Hussle are believed to have known each other, said LAPD Chief Michel Moore.

Mayor Eric Garcetti at the same news conference announced plans to deploy new resources to try to roll back the violence.

Both Moore and Police Commission President Steve Soboroff said they were devastated when they learned Hussle had been killed on the eve of their talk. Dozens of police officers cleared the memorial site after a fight apparently broke out and a stampede ensued.

At least two people were critically injured during the stampede and taken to the hospital, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department.

An autopsy completed Monday showed that Hussle was shot in the head and torso.

The information regarding Holder comes mere hours after a vigil was held for the rapper, born Ermias Asghedom outside of the shopping strip he owned.
