On Wednesday the shooting suspect of rapper Nipsey Hussle was found guilty of first degree murder.
Eric Holder Jr. was found guilty of first-degree murder in the 2019 shooting of California based hip-hop star. Holder, 32, had no visible reaction to the verdict, according to the Los Angeles Times; while Hussle’s family did not attend the trial and has not publicly commented on the verdict.
Holder will be sentenced Sept. 15 and could face a prison term that would amount to life in jail.
Holder shot Hussle 11 times on March 31, 2019, while the rapper was signing autographs outside a clothing store he owned in the Crenshaw neighborhood of Los Angeles, where he grew up. Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom, was pronounced dead at a local hospital; he was 33. Holder was arrested in Bellflower, Calif., two days later.
