A man suspected of killing rapper Nipsey Hussle over the weekend was arrested in Bellflower on Tuesday following an individual's tip, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Hussle was gunned down on Sunday afternoon in front of his Hyde Park clothing store, Marathon Clothing Company. He then ran down an alley and jumped into the passenger side of a auto driven by an unidentified woman, they said.

Moore said his department was seeking to obtain a warrant to arrest Eric Holder, 29, identified Monday night as the suspected shooter through witness accounts and video evidence at the scene.

At a news conference Tuesday morning at LAPD headquarters, Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti called for the community to work together to help solve this crime and other violent crimes - and to refrain from more violence.

Two of the victims were transported to local hospitals for their injuries, the release said. She also reportedly claims that Holder said nothing when he got back in the vehicle.

Sources have confirmed that Nipsey Hussle was killed in the shooting outside of his store.

Nipsey Hussle, real name Ermias Asghedom, was 33 years old.

There is breaking news out of Los Angeles, California that will bring relief to the family, friends and fans of Nipsey Hussle.

A Times reporter at the scene was among those trampled.

Robert Arcos, an LAPD assistant chief, told the Times that a fight appeared to have started the stampede after one person possibly pulled out a gun. The shards injured several people, and many were limping as they tried to find their way around police barricades.

"Here was somebody coming in to say 'how can we help?'" Soboroff said, wearing the tie he'd laid out for the meeting that never happened.
