Nipsey Hussle Shooting Suspect Charged with Murder, Faces Life in Prison

  /  04.04.2019

Eric Holder, the suspect in the fatal shooting of Nipsey Hussle, was officially charged Thursday (April 4).

The L.A. County District Attorney charged Holder, 29, with one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder, and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. The attempted murder charges are for the alleged shootings of the two other victims, Kerry Lathan and Shermi Cervabta Villanueva.

Holder was taken into custody on Tuesday following a city-wide manhunt. According to the LAPD, he approached Nipsey outside of his Marathon Clothing store before fatally shooting him and injuring two others.

Nipsey was at his Marathon store on Sunday to help out his friend Kerry, who had just been released from jail after 20 years, by hooking him up with with some new clothes. According to TMZ, Shermi was Kerry’s nephew and had driven him to meet with Nipsey.

Holder is being held in solitary confinement at a Los Angeles jail because police see him as a target. They will keep him away from anyone that may want to seek out revenge for Nipsey’s death.

Prosecutors have recommended Holder’s bail be set at $5 million. If convicted of murder, he faces between 25 years to life in prison.

Holder is being represented by attorney Chris Darden, who was part of the prosecution team during the O.J. Simpson murder trial in the mid-1990s.
