A man suspected of fatally shooting rapper Nipsey Hussle over a personal dispute has finally been captured in the Bellflower area. The Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department confirmed to CBS2 that 29-year-old Eric Holder was caught by deputies around 1:30 p.m after he showed up to a mental health facility. LAPD Chief Michel Moore told reporters Tuesday that Holder, a gang member, approached Hussle and the other men he was with several times Sunday and spoke with them. Holder then returned with a handgun and opened fire.
“Mr. Holder walked up on multiple occasions and engaged in a conversation with Nipsey and the others that were there. He left and subsequently came back armed with a handgun, and purposefully and repeatedly fired, striking and killing Nipsey Hussle.”
One of the injured men was hospitalized, but the other was treated at the scene and refused to be transported.
Following the shooting, Holder fled in a 2016 Chevrolet Cruz being driven by an unidentified woman. Investigators were searching for both Holder and the female getaway driver.
