Los Angeles, CA – A second and longer version of the surveillance video that captured the Nipsey Hussle shooting has emerged. In this one, a man in a dark shirt opens fire on Nip three separate times.
After the initial shot, he returns and shoots again and then shoots a third time. He then kicks Nipsey before bolting toward the alley, which is where the first video began.
Before the alleged shooter killed Nipsey, he reportedly got into a heated conversation with the Grammy Award-nominated rapper. Police said the man believe Nip snitched.

Nipsey Hussle’s murder was in close proximity to several security cameras in the area, including one on a building adjacent to the Marathon Clothing store where the fatal shooting took place.
In footage obtained by TMZ, someone enters the frame from an alleyway, walking quickly toward the front of the store.
As shots are fired, people start scattering in the parking lot in an attempt to take cover.
Although the actual shooting is impossible to see, a victim does collapse to the ground. It hasn’t been determined if the gunman is one of the people running from the scene, but there were evidently several eye witnesses.
Footage of the aftermath shows emergency responders wheeling Nip to the ambulance while actively delivering life-saving efforts. He later died at a local hospital.
Police believe the shooter is a black male in his 20s who escaped in a vehicle driven by a woman.
Investigators, of course, are still working the case.
