Suspect Arrested in Nipsey Hussle Murder

A man has been arrested in connection with the death of Nipsey Hussle, reports TMZ.

Over the weekend, Grammy-nominated rapper Hussle was gunned down in front of his Marathon Clothing Company in Los Angeles. Two other men were shot in the incident.

Eric Holder, 29, was taken into custody by the L.A. Sheriff’s Department on Tuesday. He is being held without bail. A woman believed to be his getaway driver reportedly turned herself in.

During a press conference, LAPD Chief Michel Moore said, "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.”

Chief Moore said there was likely a personal dispute between the two men. “At this point in our investigation, based on witness statements, and the background of those that we’ve identified, we believe this to be a dispute between Mr. Hussle and Mr. Holder.”

The same day as Holder's arrest, Hussle's longtime girlfriend Lauren London broke her silence for the first time.

London wrote on Instagram, "I am completely lost. I've lost my best friend, my sanctuary, my protector, my soul. I'm lost without you. We are lost without you babe. I have no words."

The couple had been together for five years, and had a 2-year-old son together named Kross.
