Longer surveillance video shows Nipsey Hussle shooting
What happened to Nipsey Hussle?
LOS ANGELES — Grammy-nominated rapper and community advocate Nipsey Hussle was fatally shot on Sunday, in an incident that the Los Angeles Police Department says arose from a personal dispute.
Hours after surveillance footage of the shooting made its way online, a longer version emerged that gave a clearer view of the shooter. Here, we recreate what went down based on that video.
CBS reports that on March 31, rapper Nipsey Hussle and three other men were standing in front of his clothing store in L.A.'s Hyde Park.
According to the LAPD, gang member Eric Holder approached the group several times, engaging them in conversation before leaving.
According to CNN, Holder returned around 3:20 p.m. armed with a handgun and opened fire at the group. Surveillance video from an adjacent business shows Hussle and another man fall to the ground, as the others run from the gunfire.
In the video, the shooter appears to walk away, before then coming back to shoot Hussle a second time, and then a third. He kicks the rapper after the third shot, then flees the scene. CNN reports that Hussle died from gunshots to the head and torso. Two others were wounded.
According to the LAPD, Holder ran down an alley following the shooting, and got into a waiting car driven by a woman, which then sped away.
The LA Times reports that the woman turned herself in after news of the shooting broke out, claiming she didn't know what Holder did when she picked him up. Holder was later arrested in the Bellflower area, after being spotted by a resident.
TMZ, citing 'multiple sources,' says Holder and Hussle had a tense exchange before the shooting. Holder allegedly sought revenge after feeling disrespected when Nipsey asked him if he had snitched to the cops in the past.
