“Eric Holder, the suspected killer of Nipsey Hussle, has been arrested and is in police custody,” the Los Angeles Police Department announced on Twitter. “Thank you to both our community for the heightened awareness/vigilance, and our partners at @LASDHQ.”
Details about the arrest were not immediately available.
Holder allegedly shot the Grammy-nominated rapper and two others on Sunday afternoon outside of Hussle's retail store in a South Los Angeles strip mall.
The suspect then fled the scene in a white 2016 Chevy Cruz that was driven by an unidentified female, according to the release. The vehicle’s California license plate was reported to be 7RJD742.
Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom, “died as a result of the gunshot wounds he sustained,” police said. He was 33 years old. Two others were taken to area hospitals, according to the news release.
