Day by day, we learn a little more about what took place the day of Nipsey Hussle’s murder.
On Tuesday, the LAPD identified Eric Holder as the shooter. He was found later that day at a mental health facility in Bellflower, which is still in the LA area.
According to TMZ, sometime before the shooting, Holder aka “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. He escaped in a waiting vehicle that we being driven by a female. Who has since turned herself in, been questioned and released, after claiming she had no idea or involvement in the shooting.
The unidentified woman continued, “she was with him Sunday when they drove to Nipsey’s clothing store near the Crenshaw District of L.A. She claims she was waiting for him in the alley when he went over to the clothing store. She also claims she didn’t know why he was going there and he didn’t say anything when he came back to the car.”
Two other victims were injured during the shooting and taken to the hospital with one refusing medical treatment at the scene.
We now have information that Nipsey was at the Marathon Clothing store with a friend who had just been released from prison after serving 20 years. Nipsey was hooking his friend some new clothes before he went to meet up with his own friends and family later in the day. Sources tell TMZ that Nipsey did not notify his team or security that he was going to the store alone. It was a spur of the moment thing. Allegedly, no one in his camp knew he left home.
Some feel the murder was in connection to a Dr. Sebi documentary that Nipsey was working on. Dr. Sebi was a holistic doctor out of Honduras, who believed that a change of the diet could cure any medical issue. Once here in the United States, the government tried to shut him down, claiming he was practicing without a medical license, but it was recognized that he was not a physician. Sebi was acquitted because jurors claimed the state of New York failed to show he made any medical diagnosis. In a New York newspaper, Dr. Sebi claimed to have the cure to AIDS. He was later sued for consumer fraud in New York, preventing him from making therapeutic claims for his products.
Left Eye of TLC was also connected to Dr. Sebi around the time of the death.
Lauren London broke her silence on Instagram, posting picture of her & Nipsey as well as family photos. This being one of the only times she has posted a picture of her children.
