Rapper Nipsey Hussle who was shot and killed Sunday night outside of his Los Angeles clothing store is being remembered for giving back to his community. Activists community leaders and neighbors gathered outside the store Monday to mourn

On Tuesday, a tipster called to report seeing the man police had named as a suspect, Eric Holder, in the suburban community of Bellflower, the Los Angeles Police Department said in a statement.

The rapper was shot and killed Sunday in the same Los Angeles neighborhood where he grew up.

The memorial in front of @NipseyHussle's store is huge.

Two of the people standing by the auto don't get far, however.

Hussle and the suspect, Eric Holder, 29, knew each other, but Moore did not reveal how they were acquainted or any details about what the dispute involved.

There were initial reports of gunshots, but police quickly knocked down those reports. The two men were transported to a local hospital where they received treatment. He was detained first by sheriff's deputies until LA police arrived and confirmed that he was wanted in Hussle's slaying, authorities said. After the stampede, candles were crushed as people fled the scene.

Los Angeles police spokeswoman Meghan Aguilar described it to CNN affiliate KCAL/KCBS as "absolutely chaotic, mass panic".

LAPD detectives have yet to arrest anyone in connection to the shooting and they have no suspects, but the top cops are reviewing surveillance footage in the hope of identifying the gunman. Police with riot gear and batons begin forming containment lines.

Martinez's second home run of the 2019 Major League Baseball season is one the Boston Red Sox slugger won't soon forget. Rodriguez allowed six runs (five earned) on eight hits while walking three and throwing 105 pitches, 61 for strikes.

People carry away the injured as emergency responders tend to people on the ground, the affiliate video shows. A police spokesperson also clarified that an officer was injured. Two other people suffered serious injuries and 15 had injuries that were considered non-life threatening.

It seems that a fight erupted in the crowd and this led to two critical injuries according to the reports.

Drake paid tribute to Nipsey Hussle during the opening night of his London residency at The O2 arena on Monday evening, April 1, 2019. Holder then allegedly ran through a nearby alley and hopped into a waiting auto, according to the release.

Holder was last seen in a white, four-door, 2016 Chevy Cruze, with the California license plate 7RJD742, the police department said on Twitter.

Nipsey, 33, was shot six times and died of gunshot wounds to the head and torso, according to the medical examiner.

Media caption33-year-old Nipsey Hussle was shot dead outside his clothing store in Los Angeles. Hussle's debut studio album, "Victory Lap", was nominated for Best Rap Album at this year's Grammy Awards.

Hussle's death came just one day before he had plans to meet with the president of the Los Angeles Board of Police Commissioners and the city's chief of police to "to talk about ways he could help stop gang violence and help us help kids". "Their work is vital", he said.

"The meeting will happen", Soboroff said.
