The man accused of killing rapper Nipsey Hussle has been arrested. "Eric Holder, the suspected killer of Nipsey Hussle, has been arrested and is in police custody. Thank you to ... our community for the heightened awareness/vigilance," the LAPD said on Twitter Tuesday. Earlier in the day, CNN reports, the Los Angeles police chief said that surveillance video shows Holder, 29, approaching the rapper and others multiple times, talking to them, and then ultimately returning with a handgun and "purposely and repeatedly" firing at the group of men. Two others were injured, and Hussle was killed. (Police believe Hussle knew Holder, and that the dispute was personal, not gang-related.)
