Nipsey Hussle murder case: Struggle over handgun sparked stampede at memorial vigil, police chief says

LOS ANGELES (KABC) – While the search continued Tuesday for the 29-year-old man suspected of shooting and killing Nipsey Hussle in Los Angeles, the mayor and police commissioner discussed the impact of the rapper’s death and provided at a press conference new details of the murder investigation.

Police chief Michel Haye set up an instant of reporters at LAPD headquarters and called on suspect Eric Holder to inform himself and describe the circumstances that caused a rush during a memorial vigil on Monday evening.

According to Moore, a person in the crowd tried to disarm a person who waved a gun. A struggle ensued and bystanders started running in an attempt to find safety. A LAPD commander who was posted nearby said no guns were taking place.

Moore also discussed a recent broader increase in violent crimes in the city, but stressed that investigators believe that the shooting that claimed Hussle’s life was the result of a personal complaint and not gang ganging.

Dozens of LAPD officers cleared the area close to a gigantic improvised memorial on Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard after the argument that caused the rush.

Unfounded reports initially indicated that a shooting led to panic outside Hussle’s clothing store The Marathon.

Anyone with information about the case or whereabouts of the holder is asked to call the South Bureau Criminal Gang Homicide Division of the LAPD at (213) 485-4341.
