Police is requesting that anybody with information about Eric Holder can contact South Bureau Homicide at 323-786-5100.
A surveillance video (which we will not share here) showed the person shooting Nipsey once and moving away, then coming back and shooting him twice more. A vigil on Monday night for the rapper outside the store where he was shot resulted in chaos. Rumors of gun shots led to stampede with several people injured.
