Nispey Hussle Murder Suspect Identified As Eric Holder By LAPD | Crime Time

A reporter for ABC7 tweeted that a "HUGE stampede of people rushed out of the memorial area", which was in front of Hussle's The Marathon Clothing store in the Hyde Park area of Los Angeles.

This video from Instagram user @hecks237 shows the crowd attentively listening to a speaker when the sound of glass shattering is suddenly heard and panic ensues. Responders arrived on the scene and treated one person who was in critical care, according to KHOU TV.

Eric Holder, 29, is wanted in connection to the shooting of the rapper, whose legal name is Ermias Asghedom, the police department said in a statement Monday night. While several local TV stations also reported that up to six people had been stabbed, an LAPD spokesperson later said the injuries appeared to mostly be caused by the stampede. Here, the rapper is seen in the photo performing onstage at the Warner Music Pre-Grammy Party at the NoMad Hotel in Los Angeles, Feb. 7, 2019.

Rapper Nipsey Hussle died of gunshot wounds to the head and torso, the L.A. County Coroner's Office confirmed on Monday. One was treated on the scene and the other is in stable condition.

The suspect then allegedly ran to a getaway vehicle, driven by an unidentified woman.

Detectives said that anyone with information related to Holder's whereabouts or the deadly shooting is urged to contact South Bureau Homicide at 323-786-5100.

There were initial reports of gunshots, but police quickly knocked down those reports. Shortly before the shooting, Hussle had tweeted about "enemies". Though Nipsey released several mixtapes independently or through his All Money In record label, his studio debut, "Victory Lap", dropped past year and was nominated for a Grammy.

Last year, the rapper opened a workspace and science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM, center that he described as a bridge between Silicon Valley and the inner city.

LA Police Commissioner Steve Soboroff revealed on Twitter he was scheduled to meet at the rapper's request to "talk about ways he could help stop gang violence and help us help kids".

"It's been a tough few days for Los Angeles", Garcetti said.

"I just want to give back in an effective way", he told the Los Angeles Times in 2018. "You see no structures or infrastructure built and you get a little frustrated".
