The man suspected to be Nipsey Hussle's killer finally got indicted by the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office. The man, Eric Holder, is now headed to trial for the murder. 

A grand jury returned the indictment against Eric Ronald Holder Jr. to the Los Angels County District Attorney's Office last May 9, and it is officially unsealed today. He was indicted for one count of murder, two counts each of attempted murder and assault with a firearm, and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. 


Eric Holder is also being indicted due to allegations of him using a handgun to cause great bodily injury and death to another person. 

A Plea of Innocence

Eric pleaded not guilty after being arrested for the charges against him. He is now scheduled to return for a pretrial hearing on June 18 at the Foltz Criminal Justice Center. 


Deputy District Attorney John McKinney is set to prosecute the case, hoping to bring justice to Nipsey Hussle's death. 

Nipsey's Tragic End 

Rapper Nipsey Hussle was shot dead outside of his store in L.A. last March 31. 

The Grammy-nominated rapper was killed with two others wounded in the shooting, just outside the Los Angeles store owned by the rapper. According to the cops, the shooting was reported at 3:20 PM in Slauson Avenue in Hyde Park. 


Although the victims were rushed to the hospital, Nipsey was pronounced dead on arrival. He was only 33-years-old. 

His family now hopes to bring justice to his death, something that devastated them greatly. He left behind his long-time girlfriend and two children, Kross Asghedom and Emani Asghedom. 

Rest In Peace, Nipsey Hussle!
