Police reports state that Holder walked up to Nipsey and two other men and fired numerous rounds in front of Nip’s Marathon Clothing store in the Crenshaw District. Holder then escaped from an alley into a white 2016 Chevy Cruze which was driven by an unidentified female who has turned herself in to authorities.
“Mr. Holder walked up on multiple occasions and engaged in a conversation with Nipsey and the others that were there,” said LAPD Chief Michel Moore. “He left and subsequently came back armed with a handgun, and purposefully and repeatedly fired, striking and killing Nipsey Hussle.”
The murder was allegedly over a personal dispute.
