Nipsey Hussle murder video:
Grammy-nominated artist Nipsey Hussle was shot Sunday in the Hyde Park neighborhood, outside the rapper’s The Marathon Clothing store in Los Angeles.
A video from a surveillance camera that captured moment Nipsey was shot showed he was among four people standing by a car when gunfire erupted outside his clothing store.
It is not clear which one is Nipsey, but the people appear to be talking. Others are milling about in front of the store. A figure dressed in dark clothing appears to approach the four and then everyone scatters.
Eric Holder, 29, was named in Nipsey’s shooting death and has now been arrested.
In a statement, police said Holder walked up to Nipsey and two other men as they stood outside a business in a strip mall on West Slauson Boulevard.
He fired multiple times and then ran to a nearby alley where a vehicle — “driven by an unidentified female” — was waiting for him, police said.
Holder entered from the passenger side and the vehicle fled, authorities said.
Nipsey died in the shooting and the two other men were injured and transported to the hospital.
A memorial to honour rapper Hussle ended in a stampede that injured multiple people, two critically.
The lady getaway driver who aided Eric Holder, alleged Nipsey Hussle’s killer, has said she was not involved in the shooting and had no idea about it beforehand.
