The man who police believe murdered rapper Nipsey Hussle has been captured in Los Angeles. ABC 7 in Los Angeles reports that police have arrested twenty-nine year-old Eric Ronald Holder, who they say they identified as the man who shot the rapper on Sunday in front of his clothing store in Hyde Park.

Hussle died in the attack due to gunshot wounds to he head and torso, while two other people were wounded. Hussle was thirty-three.

According to the LAPD, a tip was called in at around 1:15 PM on Tuesday saying that they thought they saw Holder. Deputies responded and detained the man, who LAPD detectives confirmed the identity of. Holder allegedly fled the scene of the shooting in a white car, with an identified woman as the getaway driver. The woman has turned herself in.

The dispute between Holder and Hussle has been described as personal and not, as previously-reported, gang-related.
