It's been less than two months since we lost rapper and activist Nipsey Hussle. His shooter, Eric Holder, has finally been indicted by a grand jury on May 9th, announced by Los Angeles County District Attorney office. Holder was indicted on one count of murder, two counts each of attempted murder, assault with a firearm and one count of possession of firearm by felon. Reported from People, He is accused of running down on the California rapper outside of his South Los Angeles clothing store, Marathon Clothing store on March 31st. Located on West Slauson Ave, where Nipsey Hussle grew up, its now been renamed Nipsey Hussle Square since his passing. Nipsey Hussle, who real name is Ermias Asghedom, was killed on the screen by Holder, and two associates was also injured during the shooting. Los Angeles police arrested the suspect after nearly a 48-hour Manhunt, Holder was arrested April 2nd. In early April Christopher Darden, Holders Lawyer, who also was part of the OJ Simpson case in 1995 withdrawn from the case due to death threats to him and his family. He had this to say in a facebook post,
“After centuries of a history of black men hung from trees without trial, or after the thousands of cases of black men tried, convicted and executed without counsel; after Gideon v. Wainwright & Powell v. Alabama, I cannot understand why in 2019 some people would deny a black man his 6th Amendment right to counsel of his choice. Or why defending such a man should invite threats not only against me but against my children too.”
According to USA Today, the 29 year-old alleged shooter has plead not guilty to all charges and will be back in court to start pre-trial  in June. He's being held on 6.53 million dollar Bond. If convicted Holder will be facing life for killing the a Grammy-nominated rapper. Friends and family continue to keep Hussle's dreams and vision alive to uplift his people and encouraging ownership in the black community. #Themarathoncontinues
