LAPD Identifies A Suspect In Nipsey Hussle Murder Case

One person has been stabbed and 19 were injured after violence broke out at a memorial for rapper Nipsey Hussle outside the Los Angeles store where he was shot dead a day earlier.

The Grammy-nominated artist was among four people standing between cars outside the Marathon Clothing store he owned in Los Angeles' Hyde Park neighborhood, video from a surveillance camera trained on the parking lot shows.

Several people in the crowd became rowdy as police attempted to clear the area, throwing candles and other items at officers, Aguilar said, adding that at least one officer was hurt and at least one person was detained.

Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Joseph Asghedom, was shot to death in front of Marathon Clothing, the store he founded in 2017.

"Reports of shots fired at the vigil do not appear to be accurate".

The L.A. County coroner confirmed Monday that Hussle, a Grammy-nominated musician with famous fans like Jay-Z, Drake and National Basketball Association star LeBron James, died from gunshot wounds to the head and torso.

Two other men were injured during the shooting. The suspect ran southbound through an adjacent alley to a waiting vehicle.

While both Hussle and Holder have ties to street gangs, the dispute between them was personal and did not involve gang activity, Moore said.


Before his death, Hussle released hit album "Victory Lap" in February 2018.

The other person hospitalized was in "stable condition" and was "expected to pull through", Lt. Chris Ramirez told The Washington Post on Sunday. Los Angeles police are traveling to a sheriff's substation where the man is being held to verify his identity.

A couple hours before he died, Hussle tweeted, "Having strong enemies is a blessing".

Hussle was a respected and beloved artist for a decade in hip-hop inner circles, and broke out with his Grammy-nominated major label debut previous year. Last year, he opened a co-working space and STEM center called Vector90 in South Central Los Angeles. Hussle also took part in an arts project meant to celebrate the city's black culture.

The police chief and the president of the city's Police Commission had been scheduled to meet with Hussle on Monday to discuss the relationship between the police force and the inner city.

His Facebook page says he was a member of the Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips founded in Los Angeles in the mid-1970s.

Nipsey was known for giving back to his Los Angeles community in numerous ways, offering jobs to struggling locals at his businesses around the city, paying for the funerals of victims of gun violence and pouring money into local schools. "I remember being young and really having the best intentions and not being met on my efforts. You see no structures or infrastructure built and you get a little frustrated".
