Police have identified the suspect wanted in connection with the murder of Nipsey Hussle after the rapper was gunned down in Los Angeles in broad daylight.
The LAPD released a photo of 29-year-old Eric Holder on Monday night saying he was wanted over the fatal shooting a day earlier.
Surveillance video captured a gunman fatally opening fire on the 33-year-old rapper on Sunday afternoon outside Marathon Clothing, the store he founded to help rebuild his troubled South Los Angeles neighborhood.
The video captured a man, now allegedly believed to be Holder, approaching Hussle and a group of men as they stood by a white car parked at the front of his store.
Seconds later, Hussle could be seen dropping to the ground while multiple men fled the scene as the gunfire rang out. The gunman could be seen firing from a distance before approaching and shooting multiple times at close range.
The gunman appeared to kick Hussle before fleeing the same way he came.
Police said Holder fled the scene in a white, four-door 2016 Chevy Cruze, with the license plate number 7RJD742. The car was being driven by an unidentified female.
