LOS ANGELES — The Grammy-nominated rapper Nipsey Hussle was killed in a shooting outside his clothing store in Los Angeles, multiple law enforcement sources said. Two other men were in serious condition, and a suspect remained at large.



******************************************************

Nipsey Hussle was just shot outside his clothing store, the Marathon Clothing Company, in Los Angeles.


According to TMZ, the 33-year-old rapper was gunned down Sunday (March 31). His condition is unknown at this point. He was reportedly shot six times.


Law enforcement sources told the gossip site three people were shot outside Nipsey's store, and one of those people died at the hospital. It's unclear if that person is Nipsey.

Only hours before the shooting, the "Racks In The Middle" rapper tweeted, "Having strong enemies is a blessing."


Story developing.

Apparently, it's still open season on POC in the United States.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

This is so sad to hear. This young man had been doing a lot of great work in his community for some years now. He was even putting together a documentary on Dr. Sebi.

I don't know the young man as an artist, but my younger adult kids do, and told me about it, and needless to say, they are affected and upset.......so sorry to hear this, and that this man lost his life.

I know poppys, I didn't know this young man as an entertainer, but I remember laughing at his name when I heard my adult children talking about him, because of the comedian Nipsey Russell, someone that I knew of.smile

OMG, so sad. I wasn't a big fan of Nipsey's music, but i respected how he operated in the rap world.

Nipsey was loved by a lot of people, and among them a lot of people with pull. And he was from the biggest black gang in LA(Rollin 60s). So, whoever killed him is a dead man walking.

Man, so young to die. rose

Rest in Peace Bettie Boo. See u soon.

So, Nipsey's suspected killer has been named. He's 29 year old Eric Holder. And he's from the same neighborhood as Nipsey. AND either if it's in jail or on the streets, he's most definitely a dead man walking. disbelief

not a hip hop fan, wonder what the motive was, i've never heard any of his music but i heard the name and remembered it because of the russel connection.

Yeah it will be interesting see what the motive was, although like Joey said, he's a dead man walking.

Looks like violence broke out during the vigil last night. The news is reporting that Nipsey and the shooter got into a fight, (they didn't say if it was verbal or physical) right before this happened.

NIPSEY HUSSLE SUSPECT NAM...ant Issued

The LAPD says, "Eric Holder is wanted for the homicide in the shooting of Nipsey Hussle. He was last seen in a 2016 white 4 door Chevy Cruze, CA license plate 7RJD7842. Anyone with information related to his whereabouts or this deadly shooting is urged to contact South Bureau Homicide at 323 786-5100."

Our law enforcement sources tell TMZ, at the time of this post they have not located Holder who goes by the street name "Shitty."

We broke the story ... Nipsey was brutally murdered Sunday afternoon in Los Angeles, where he was gunned down outside his clothing store in the Hyde Park neighborhood. The Crenshaw rapper was pronounced dead at the hospital after paramedics performed CPR at the murder scene and during the ambulance ride. The L.A. County Medical Coroner says Nipsey died from gunshot wounds to his head and torso. Two other people were shot, but they survived.

Nipsey was murdered in view of a surveillance camera, and footage shows the shooter -- the man in the dark shirt -- opening fire 3 different times on Nipsey before kicking his body and fleeing toward a back alley.

Our sources tell us sometime before the shooting, "Shitty" had a tense exchange with Nipsey. We're told Nipsey asked him if he had snitched to cops in the past, because that was the word around town. We're told "Shitty" felt disrespected, left to grab a gun ... then allegedly returned to get revenge.

Although I never met Nipsey. He was gang affiliated with a use to be close friend of mine that knew him.

So Prince, whom fought 4 his first record deal & got it, fought 4 a movie deal & got it, fought 4 freedom from his WB contract & got it, fought 4 his masters & got them.Gets a curable illness & says 2 himself ok, I'm done. "Life is a Box Of Chocolates"

A source I heard said Nipsey was sat to have a meeting with police about gang violence, not sure if this is rumor but is also floating out there. Either way it seems it is a gang related beef from the past which is reallly just plain sad.

wouldn't surprise me really, that's why i didn't go to my go to response for a needless shooting of a black on black man. Although I've known way too many guys get shot or imprisoned trying to act like their favorite rapper, I don't know enough about this guy to say that. After almost getting into a fight with some black kid a couple months ago me and my best friend got into a discussion about hip hop, which he is a longtime follower. My statement to him is the same, more or less, as it was 25 years ago. "how many guys we known get themselves shot trying to act like some rapper". It's almost predictable now, you see someone get shot and look up their pictures and here they are on social media snarling, giving the finger to the camera and just plain being antisocial. I've never liked hip hop. And even though I love rock, I've never liked a lot of the sloppy, self destructive shit it encourages either.

Yes, the news said that he was meeting with the PD the next day.

This just sickens and pisses me off, that his life was taken by some idiot. It's just senseless.

Nipsey Hussle Girlfriend Lauren London Mourns His Heartbreaking Death: I’ve Lost My ‘Best Friend’

Lauren London is heartbroken over the shooting death of her longtime boyfriend, and father of her son, Nipsey Hussle. The model posted an emotional Instagram message on April 2.

Lauren London, 34, spoke out for the first time about the shooting death of her longtime boyfriend, Nipsey Hussle in a heartbreaking Instagram post on April 2. She posted a photo of her murdered parter and wrote in the caption “I am completely lost. I’ve lost my best friend. My sanctuary. My protector. My soul…I’m lost without you. We are lost without you babe. I have no words.” Nipsey’s alleged killer Eric Holder, 29, was taken into sheriff’s custody in Bellflower, CA, a suburb of LA, just three hours before her gut-wrenching post.

Lauren, a model, actress and television personality, was in a five-year relationship with the rapper when he died. The couple shared a young son together, 2-year-old Kross Asghedom. Nipsey had a daughter from a previous relationship, named Emani Asghedom. The rapper took Emani to the 2019 Grammys as his date, where he was nominated for Best Rap Album of the Year for his debut studio album, Victory Lap.

Before his death, Nipsey and Lauren opened up about their relationship in a joint interview, where the model admitted that their own versions of how they met didn’t exactly parallel one another. “I did not slide into his DMs. My homeboy did,” Lauren told GQ in its March 2019 issue, which titled their interview, “California Love with Nipsey Hussle and Lauren London.” The couple’s photoshoot for the interview sparked engagement rumors, as they were pictured in all white with Lauren sitting on white horse.

They made such a beautiful looking couple. Losing your soulmate is the most painful feeling that U can ever imagine. U really never get over it. It's an excruciating pain to feel....

It has affected me in ways that I never imagined.

It affected me also! Since I use to know someone in his circle. He was HIGHLY respected & looked after his own. They should name a street after him in that area in his honor. It would be the ultimate tribute to him. I pray for his beautiful drop dead gorgeous wife & family pray

Thanks for your heartfelt response. bheart

At least someone here is showing compassion.
