Eric Holder Pleads Not Guilty In Nipsey Hussle Murder Case

Nipsey Hussle Shooting Suspect Charged with Murder, Faces Life in Prison

Nipsey was shot and killed Sunday by a man who approached him outside his store, Marathon Clothing, in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.

According to the press release, Holder was charged with one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon.

Holder has been ordered to return to court on May 10.

Darden asked Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Teresa Sullivan to ban cameras from the courtroom, a request she denied.

By now it should go without saying that Nipsey Hussle was one of the most beloved hip-hop artists across the globe, as even though he was defined by Los Angeles culture he was truly respected from coast-to-coast.

Holder is slated to appear in a downtown courtroom this afternoon, two days after his arrest and nearly 48 hours after the manhunt for him began. Investigators say the slaying was motivated by a personal dispute between the two men.

If convicted on the murder charge, Holder faces up to life in state prison. A woman who drove Holder away from the scene has not been arrested or charged in the case.

In 2012, Holder pleaded no contest to a charge of carrying a loaded weapon in a public place.

Nipsey Hussle grew up in south LA and was a member of the Rollin' 60s gang as a teenager.
