Eric Holder, the man accused of murdering rapper Nipsey Hussle has officially been charged with murder.
Holder, a 29-year-old aspiring rapper, was charged with one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon during a court appearance Thursday.
Holder pleaded not guilty at his arraignment in the murder of rapper Nipsey Hussle. If convicted, he faces a possible maximum sentence of life in state prison.
Holder was taken into custody by Los Angeles County Sheriff’s officials in Bellflower, California on Tuesday (April 2), hours after Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) chief Michel Moore urged the 29-year-old to turn himself in during a press conference. He has been held on $7 million bail.
Hussle, real name Ermias Asghedom, was gunned down in South Los Angeles on Sunday outside of his store, Marathon Clothing. He was 33. Two other men were also shot, but survived.
Investigators believe Holder had a personal dispute with Hussle, and claim his death had nothing to do with gang violence.
