The LAPD has arrested Nipsey Hussle’s alleged killer after an intense, two-day manhunt. Eric Holder, 29, was taken into custody yesterday afternoon in Bellflower, around 20 miles from where he allegedly killed Hussle on Sunday. He was arrested at around 1:30 p.m. by LA County Sheriff’s Officers. No further details have been released. It came after his alleged getaway driver, a woman who is yet to be named, spoke out to say she had no idea he had just shot Hussle when he came running back to their car on Sunday. The woman has not been named publicly but told TMZ she was with Eric Holder, aka “S****y cuz,” on Sunday when he shot the rapper outside his clothing store in south Los Angeles. She says Holder did not tell her what he was planning when he got out his vehicle and approached Hussle to shoot him then returned. She claims he said nothing when he got back in her vehicle and that she is in no way an accomplice. The woman handed herself in to police yesterday afternoon. Police sources say he and the rapper were known to one another and that it was a gang-related killing but they have not revealed further details or suggested a motive but they say it was personal and had not been ordered by gang leaders.
