(AllHipHop News) The man who was thrown in jail shortly after he was shot alongside rapper Nipsey Hussle is a free man.
Nipsey was shot and killed in the parking lot of his Marathon Clothing store on March 31 in Los Angeles.
After a dispute, a neighborhood gangbanger named Eric Holder allegedly shot and killed Nipsey, while seriously wounding Kerry Lathan.
Lathan, 56, had served almost a decade in prison for murder and had run into the rap superstar by chance, who was planning to give the recently freed man some free clothing.
But Lathan was seriously wounded instead, as Holder blasted Nipsey Hussle six times.
Reports stated Kerry Lathan was struck in the spine and paralyzed in the shooting.
His probation officers decided Lathan had violated the terms of his release for associating with Nipsey, who was a known member of the Rollin 60's Crips.
After public outcry, Kerry Lathan has officially been released from the Men's Central Jail in downtown Los Angeles, but he is currently still in the complex receiving medical treatment for a bullet wound to the back.
