Eric Holder, aka Shitty Cuz, was identified as the murder suspect in the shooting of rapper Nipsey Hussle, who was gunned down in broad daylight in front of his clothing store in Los Angeles on Sunday, March 31. Holder was a known gang member associated with the Rollin 60’s Neighborhood Crips, the same gang Nipsey had previously publicly revealed he was a part of.
The Los Angeles Police Department had eyes on Holder and on Tuesday, April 2, he was detained and taken into custody.
A woman who was with Holder and driving the getaway car when he allegedly shot Nipsey — five times in the body and once in the head — has also turned herself in, according to reports. Holder was detained by the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department in Bellflower, California around 1:35 p.m. local time.
Holder’s arrest was captured on video by a bystander and shared by TMZ.
