Suspected killer of rapper Nipsey Hussle arrested-Police.

Police on Tuesday arrested the man suspected of fatally shooting rapper Nipsey Hussle, authorities said.Eric Holder, 29, had been on the run for two days before he was captured in Bellflower, a Los Angeles-area city about 20 miles southeast of where Hussle was gunned down two days earlier.

Hussle and Holder knew each other, and the two had some kind of personal dispute in the hours before the rapper was killed outside his Los Angeles clothing store, Police Chief Michel Moore said.

Police released Holder’s name and photo Monday night and asked for public’s help in finding him.

It was not immediately clear how authorities located the suspect.

He was detained first by sheriff’s deputies until LA police arrived and confirmed that he was wanted in Hussle’s slaying, authorities said.

The two men had several arguments on Sunday, and Holder returned to the store with a handgun and opened fire on Hussle and two other men, who survived the shooting, police said.

The chief did not reveal how the two men were acquainted or offer any details about their dispute.

While both Hussle and Holder have ties to street gangs, the dispute between them was personal and did not involve gang activity, Moore said.

After shooting Hussle and two other men who survived, Holder fled in a waiting car driven by a woman, the police chief said.

Moore had urged Holder to surrender, addressing him directly at a news conference Tuesday morning.
