Earlier this month, we reported on the murder of Grammy nominee Nipsey Hussle, and have pointed out that he had been working on a documentary that was to address a cure for cancer and AIDS. Police arrested Eric Holder on suspicion of murder in the case. Now, they are investigating Holder’s getaway driver who is seen in a new video aiding Holder to flee the scene.
The following video was from the surveillance camera that captured the moment of the shooting, though cars blocked the full view of what took place. It appears that the shooter enters from the left portion of the screen.
According to TMZ:
Nipsey Hussle‘s murderer made a mad dash to a car with a driver who was waiting to speed away from the murder scene — and it’s all captured on video.
TMZ has seen the video — shot from a surveillance camera in the area. You see the shooter race down an alley to the waiting car. The killer stops at the car for a second, then gets inside the passenger seat and the driver floors it. It’s apparent from the video … the driver was waiting to bolt from the scene.
It’s now been several weeks and the driver still has not been arrested, although, our law enforcement sources tell us the LAPD and the L.A. County D.A. are “actively investigating.”
One law enforcement source tells us, one of the hangups is whether the driver had knowledge the killer — whom police believe is Eric Holder — had a gun and was intent on murdering Nipsey. We’re told the driver insisted she did not know his intent or that he was armed.
The outlet then added:
Our sources say when the car initially rolled up to The Marathon Clothing store, Holder was driving and the woman was the passenger. We’re told Holder parked in the mini-mall parking lot next to the store. As the woman waited in the car, Nipsey and Holder had their initial conversation, in which Nipsey rebuffed him after suggesting he was a snitch — which Holder denied.
Contrary to some reports, we’re told the conversation continued without animosity. The 2 engaged in some sort of friendly hand gesture, after which, Holder walked over to the burger joint in the same mall, ordered something and eventually got in the car and left.
We’re told the car returned a short time later to a street that is connected to the alley that leads to the mall. The woman was driving and Holder was a passenger. We’re told after Holder got out and walked toward the mall, she kept the car running and waited for him to return.
Page Six reported:
The driver was interviewed by cops after Hussle’s March 31 killing, but they let her go.
The woman told police she did not know Holder intended to kill Hussle or that he had a gun, according to the website.
The obvious question should be, was this really a “personal beef” charge, as alleged by police, or was there something more sinister going on?
Holder has pleaded not guilty.
Many may think because of the kind of music that Hussle engaged in, it is unimportant, but the questions still remains: did Hussle’s murder have anything to do with his documentary?
