(AllHipHop News) Nipsey Hussle died on Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles. The 33-year-old emcee/businessman was shot outside his Marathon Clothing store.
Law enforcement investigators are looking for a black male in his 20s in connection with the murder. An Instagram user under the name @gasstongbo is now claiming to be the shooter.
Cinco Da Loc was discussing Nipsey's death during an Instagram Live broadcast when fellow Long Beach rapper GBO Gaston joined the live. Gaston then openly claimed he shot Nipsey Hussle.
Cinco reposted the live on his IG page with the following caption:

The @gasstongbo Instagram page is currently set to private, but the bio section of the account states: "Sippin on Nip." At the moment, there is no confirmation that Gaston is the person police believe is a suspect in the case.
According to the Los Angeles Police Department, three victims from the shooting near Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard were transported to a hospital, where one of them was pronounced dead. The other two were said to be in stable condition.
Nipsey Hussle (born Ermias Davidson Asghedom) is survived by a son with his longtime girlfriend, Lauren London, and a daughter from a previous relationship. His critically acclaimed project, Victory Lap, was nominated for Best Rap Album at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards.
The Rollin 60's Crips member's final tweet read: "Having strong enemies is a blessing." Other celebrities took to social media to react to Nipsey's death and offer condolences to his family.
