(AllHipHop News) The Los Angeles Police Department has apprehended Eric Holder aka "Shitty Cuz" for the murder of Nipsey Hussle.
According to reports, he was nabbed earlier this afternoon in Bellflower, California.
LAPD detectives said Nipsey argued with Holder, aka "Shitty Cuz," who returned minutes later to shoot the rap star and his associates.
“Mr. Holder walked up on multiple occasions and engaged in a conversation with Nipsey and the others that were there," Police chief Michael Moore said. "He left and subsequently came back armed with a handgun, and purposefully and repeatedly fired, striking and killing Nipsey Hussle.”
Nipsey died from gunshot wounds to the head and torso, according to a coroner's report.
The 33-year-old rap star/entrepreneur was gunned down outside his Marathon Clothing Store in Crenshaw, Los Angeles on Sunday afternoon (March 31).
Holder is accused of shooting Nipsey multiple times and kicked him in the head as he lay dying. He was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital.
Two other people were injured in the shooting incident but survived, according to a Los Angeles Police Department spokesman.
According to Mayor Eric Garcetti, Nipsey's death was part of a spike in violence in Los Angeles over the past week, with 11 homicides.
"Even though we see homicides down this year to date over 17%, there were 11 homicide throughout the city in the last week alone. Eleven lives, 11 possibilities, 11 dreams, 11 family members, 11 friends, who were cut short. And just because they didn't make the headlines, their loved ones are just as deeply grieving as so many friends and family are for Nipsey," Mayor Eric Garcetti said.
Eric Holder is facing a slew of charges, including murder charges for the senseless shooting.
