Multiple Injuries reported at the Nipsey Hussle Memorial
According to TMZ, multiple injuries have been reported on-site at the Nipsey Hussle memorial in response to a supposed gunshot that was heard near the area.
Just one day following the news of the rapper, 33, being fatally shot outside of his Los Angeles-based retail store, thousands of fans came out to show support. A tribute that was meant to be peaceful turned into chaos after dozens began to scramble in the crowd over the loud noise which can be seen from several vantage points in the overhead cameras.
The LAPD released a statement saying, “Our men and women are on scene and making every effort to protect everyone in attendance at the Nipsey Hussle vigil. Reports of shots fired at the vigil do not appear to be accurate. We do have injured in the chaos and are attempting to restore order.”
The statement continues, “We understand the community is mourning and we feel your loss. We are asking for everyone to follow the officers directions and disperse from the immediate area.”
The LAPD has also identified a suspect in the killing of the hip-hop star on Monday night.
Eric Holder, a 29-year-old Los Angeles resident, is believed to have opened fire at Hussle and two other victims on Slauson Avenue in the Hyde Park section of the city Sunday afternoon.
“Eric Holder is wanted for Homicide in the shooting of Nipsey Hussle,” the LAPD wrote in a tweet.
“He was last seen in a 2016 white 4 door Chevy Cruze CA license plate 7RJD742. Anyone with information related to his whereabouts or this deadly shooting is urged to contact South Bureau Homicide.”
Nipsey Hussle is survived by his two children: daughter Emani from a previous relationship and son Kross with his girlfriend, actress Lauren London
