Hussle was gunned down on March 31 after alleged killer Eric Holder shot him at least six times as he stood outside of his Marathon Clothing store.
The day after the celebrated Hip Hop artist’s death, countless people gathered at the intersection of Slauson and Crenshaw where the murder occurred. The crowd started to quickly disperse after they heard what sounded like gunshots.
Although there were initially conflicting reports, LAPD later confirmed two people were shot during the melee. A search warrant obtained by TMZ showed one person was hit in the elbow while another was shot in the lower back/buttocks.
Holder was arrested on April 2 and has since pleaded not guilty to the murder. He’s currently being held on a $5 million bond.
