Suspect Pleads Not Guilty in Nipsey Hussle Murder
There are new developments in the Nipsey Hussle murder case.
TMZ reports suspect Eric Holder was officially charged with the rapper's murder. The charges include one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm by felon.
Holder later appeared in court where he pled not guilty. His bond was set at $5 million. His next court date is set for May 10.
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 attack.
Holder, 29, was taken into custody by the L.A. Sheriff's Department on Tuesday.
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.”
