The attempted murder charges is as a result of alleged shootings of the two other victims, Kerry Lathan and Shermi Cervabta Villanueva. Following a city-wide manhunt, Holder was taken into custody on Tuesday. The LAPD said the suspect approached Hussle outside of his Marathon Clothing store before fatally shooting him and injuring two others. It’s understood Nipsey was at his store to help out Kerry who had spent the last 20 years in jail. The American rapper with hits like “Double Up” and “Last Time That I Checc’d” wanted to help his friend with with some new clothes. Shermi who was Kerry’s nephew, had driven him to meet with Nipsey, according to TMZ.

Holder is in solitary confinement at a Los Angeles jail. The police think he could be a target and he will be kept from anyone who might want to seek revenge after he killed Hussle.
