Police have been going through security footage from nearby shops to see if they could make out any information that they could use in the investigation. According to TMZ, the footage shows a man, possibly Eric Holder, confronting Hussle. They reportedly had a tense conversation and after the man in the dark shirt felt disrespected, he left to get a gun. The report states that the man shot Nipsey one time before he started to walk away. Then, he returned and opened fire a few more times.
Once again, the video below is graphic and disturbing. Please only watch it at your own discretion. RIP Nipsey Hussle.
