Hussle slaying involved personal dispute, police chief says

Eric Holder, the man suspected of fatally shooting Grammy-nominated rapper Nipsey Hussle, has been captured following a manhunt, according to a report.

Born on August 15, 1985, Hussle said his first passion was music but getting resources was tough after leaving his mother's house at 14 to live with his grandmother.

At about 3:20 p.m. Sunday, the suspect walked up to the men standing in the parking lot and opened fire, police said. Moore said Holder repeatedly approached Hussle and talked with him before returning with a gun and opening fire.

A disturbance at a memorial for Hussle Monday night left at least 19 people injured, including two people who were taken to local hospitals in critical condition.

Two other injuries were serious and 15 were considered non-life threatening.

Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti called Nipsey "a tireless advocate of the people of this city and this world". Hussle falls to the ground and the other two victims run away from the gunman.

At the same time, frustrated residents are increasingly unable to find water, make phone calls or access the internet. Many took to balconies and building windows to bang pots in protest and shout curses at Maduro.

Hussle, real name Ermias Davidson Asghedom, grew up in south Los Angeles and was a member of the Rollin' 60s street gang as a teenager.

Hussle was one of three men shot outside The Marathon clothing store.

"The community is the one that is helping us solve this case", Moore said.

"Here was somebody coming in to say 'how can we help?'" Soboroff said, wearing the tie he'd laid out for the meeting that never happened.
