The man accused of killing Nipsey Hussle was charged with murder Thursday, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s office said.
Eric Ronald Holder, 29, was charged with one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. The criminal complaint also includes allegations that he personally used a firearm and caused great bodily injury and death, per the DA.
Holder was arrested Tuesday after a massive manhunt ensued after he allegedly shot and killed Hussle on Sunday afternoon in front of The Marathon Clothing store on Crenshaw Boulevard and Slauson Avenue over a “personal dispute.”
Two other men were shot allegedly by Holder during the incident and they are expected to recover from their gunshot wounds.
Represented by former OJ Simpson prosecutor Chris Darden, Holder pled not guilty and will be held on $5 million bond. If convicted, Holder faces a maximum life sentence in state prison.
Dozens of vigils have emerged in the wake of Hussle’s death on Sunday from Dallas to Washington D.C., New York and in front of The Marathon Clothing store.
Elsewhere, reports surfaced stating that Jay-Z had established a $15 million trust for Hussle’s kids. A spokesperson for Roc Nation said that the report was not true and that they were erroneous.
