According to authorities, a man matching the description of #EricHolder, the suspect responsible for the shooting death of rapper #NipseyHussle and injury of two others, has been captured. 29-year-old Holder, also known by the moniker #ShittyCuz, was taken into custody on around 12:53 pm Tuesday afternoon in #Bellflower, less than 20 miles from where he shot the rapper. Police are holding on to releasing additional details until a positive identification can be made.
As previously reported, Holder had his bail set early Wednesday morning at $7,040,000. Reportedly, he is not allowed to mingle with the general population, because police are said to believe he’s a target. Allegedly, he’ll remain in solitary once he’s transferred to L.A. County Jail while awaiting trial.
Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of Nipsey Hussel
