Nipsey Hussle’s Alleged Killer Charged With Murder, Enters Not Guilty Plea


Nipsey Hussle's brother, Samiel Asghedom, recently spoke about trying to save the late rapper's life and how he wishes someone would have been able to return fire on the shooter.

The Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office charged Holder with four counts, including one count of murder and two counts of attempted murder. Holder entered a not guilty plea to the charge of fatally shooting Hussle, on Sunday outside of the rapper's Los Angeles store.

Darden tried unsuccessfully to prevent the media from filming his client during his arraignment on Thursday, arguing that there was an "issue of identity".

He was arrested in Bellflower, a suburb of Los Angeles after police received a tip. He could face life in prison if convicted. On Thursday, prosectutors filed the murder and attempted murder charges against alleged killer Eric Holder.

Holder is slated to appear in a downtown courtroom this afternoon, two days after his arrest and nearly 48 hours after the manhunt for him began.

Two other people were injured. A woman who drove Holder away from the scene has not been arrested or charged in the case. Holder plead "not guilty" in court moments ago. He has a previous conviction for carrying a loaded firearm, the paper said.

Following news of his death, Hussle's friends, family and fans, including his longtime love, Lauren London, expressed their sadness and shared their condolences.

Hussle wrote "having strong enemies is a blessing" in a Twitter post on the day of his death.
