Deputies at the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lakewood station had received a phone call at around 12:53 p.m. from an anonymous witness who had seen someone matching Eric Holder’s description and at once, the Police Department who had been on a vengeful man hunt since Sunday swooped in and apprehended the suspect without incident (surprisingly).
Hussle was no stranger to Eric and the two were believed to have known one another. It’s been concluded that there was definitely motive behind the Murder of a personal and not a Gang related matter as is usually the case.
Meanwhile, 19 people have been hospitalized after a stampede at a memorial at Hussle’s store on Monday night ensued. One person had displayed a gun and a second person struggled to disarm him. The incident left two critically injured, one of whom was stabbed and another of whom was hit by a car.
