LAPD now believe that the killing of Nipsey Hussle was personal. They have identified Eric Holder aka “Shitty” as the shooter in the case.
LAPD Chief of Police, Michel Moore is urging Holder to surrender, and anyone with information about his whereabouts to come forward. There is a warrant for Holder’s arrest.
A view of the shooting was caught on a nearby surveillance camera, even though it is a little hard to see the details.
According to TMZ, sometime before the shooting, “Shitty” had a tense exchange with Nipsey. We’re told Nipsey asked him if he had snitched to cops in the past, because that was the word around town. We’re told “Shitty” felt disrespected, left to grab a gun, then allegedly returned to get revenge.
In New York, rapper Dave East held his own vigil for Nipsey.

There was another vigil being held at the rapper’s Marathon Clothing Company store, and place of the shooting, in L.A. . Thousands came out to show their love and support. In an overhead video of the vigil, a one point, people start running. Shots were thought to have been heard, but police confirmed there were no gunshots. The stampede of people did cause a few injures.
