Just hours after the LAPD held a press conference urging suspect, Eric Holder (29), to surrender, it seems that he has now been captured. And get this, the capture reportedly went down just 20 miles away from the murder scene, where rapper/activist, Nipsey Hussle, was shot and killed…SMH. See details below…

Via TMZ: A man matching Eric Holder’s description has reportedly been captured in the L.A. suburb of Bellflower. Law enforcement sources tell us L.A. County Sheriff’s Dept. deputies nabbed him around 12:53 PM in the 9000 block of Artesia Blvd. We’re told he’s been detained for now, and LAPD is responding to make a positive ID.

Check out the video of the arrest below…

Earlier today (April 2nd), the LAPD held a press conference to give details about the shooting of Nipsey Hussle, who was gunned down in front of his Los Angeles, CA clothing store on March 31, 2019. During the press conference, L.A. Police Commissioner Steve Soboroff seemed to be emotional as he read the email that either Roc Nation or Nipsey Hussle sent to him, days earlier.

The email was a request for Nipsey to have a meeting with the police department to help find ways to end gang violence. As we previously reported, that meeting was supposed to take place on Monday, April 1st, but sadly, Nipsey’s life was senselessly taken the day before.

Police stated that they believe Nipsey’s murder was not gang related, but rather a personal beef between him and Holder.

At this time, it has not been officially confirmed if the man who has just been arrested is in fact suspect, Eric Holder, but from the video up top, it sure does look like him.

************* UPDATE****************

It has been confirmed that the man who was captured, in the above video, is in fact Eric Holder- the suspect the LAPD believes murdered Nipsey Hussle. Holder is now in custody of the LAPD where he has officially been arrested on charges of gunning down Nipsey and he’s being held without bail.

Also, a woman who was Holder’s get-away driver has also turned herself into the LAPD.

We will keep you all posted as this story develops.

Continued condolences to Nipsey’s children, longtime love/actress, Laura London, and the rest of his family and friends. May Nipsey Hussle rest in power, after a beautiful job done here on earth.
