The L.A. Police Department (LAPD) has identified 29-year-old Eric Holder as the suspect in the shooting of rapper Nipsey Hussle, who died Sunday.
In a news release issued Monday night the same night that a memorial to Hussle devolved into chaos after numerous people were left with trampling injuries, the LAPD sought the public’s help to locate Holder, a Los Angeles resident.
The incident happened outside a business in a strip mall in the 3400-block of West Slauson Blvd.
The location was previously identified as being just outside Marathon Clothing, a store that Hussle owned. Three men were standing in the strip mall when the suspect walked up and fired a number of shots in their direction.
All the victims were hit and fell to the ground, police said.
The suspect then ran through an adjacent alley southbound before entering a waiting vehicle — a white, 2016 Chevy Cruze with four doors and license plate number 7RJD742 — that was being driven by a female who hasn’t been identified.
The suspect was identified using social media posts and surveillance video, ABC News reported.
