The Los Angeles Police Department has captured the man they believe gunned down rapper Nipsey Hussle.
Eric Holder was arrested and taken into custody by deputies around 1:30 p.m. on Tuesday in the Bellflower.
Via CBS Los Angeles:
The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed to CBS2 that 29-year-old Eric Holder was caught by deputies sometime before 1:30 p.m. Los Angeles police told CBS2 they were responding to confirm the suspect’s identity as Holder.
Hussle, 33, was killed in a triple-shooting Sunday afternoon in a South Los Angeles which left two other men wounded.
LAPD Chief Michel Moore told reporters Tuesday that Holder, a gang member, approached Hussle and the other men he was with several times Sunday and spoke with them. Holder then returned with a handgun and opened fire.
“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.”
Video of Eric Holder’s capture was caught on video:
The woman, who is the alleged getaway driver, has turned herself in.
Her identity is still unknown at this time, but she is facing charges of aiding and abetting, or worse, conspiracy to commit murder.
