Los Angeles police have identified a man suspected of gunning down Grammy-nominated rapper Nipsey Hussle outside his clothing store in Los Angeles. Police said they are searching for Eric Holder (29) who is suspected to have fatally shot Hussle.
Rapper Nipsey Hussle was killed after being shot multiple times in broad daylight outside his store on Sunday.
The 33-year-old rapper was shot on the street where his store Marathon Clothing is located in the Hyde Park neighbourhood.
Hussle was rushed to a hospital after the incident, where he was pronounced dead. Two other persons were also injured during the shooting but they are said to be in stable condition.
The LAPD said the investigation is being handled as a homicide and they are looking for one male black suspect.
The rapper, whose real name was Ermias Davidson Ashedom, hailed from Crenshaw, Los Angeles. He was nominated for a Grammy for best rap album earlier this year for his debut studio album, ‘Victory Lap’.
Hussle is survived by his two children and his girlfriend, Lauren London, who just gave birth to their son Kross in 2016. (NL Web Desk & Agencies)
