Rapper Nipsey Hussle who’s real name is Ermias Asghedom died Sunday after a shooting in Los Angeles near a clothing store he owned, according to a high-ranking law enforcement official with the Los Angeles Police Department.
Two other people were injured in the shooting around 3:20 p.m., according to the department.
The shooting occurred in the area of Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard.
All three victims were transported to a hospital, where Nipsey was pronounced dead, according to police. The other two were in stable condition, police added.
The department said it has no information about the suspect.
The rapper’s last message on Twitter read: “Having strong enemies is a blessing.”
The suspect cops are looking for is a black male in his 20s. We’re told he approached Nipsey and co. by foot Sunday afternoon and fired multiple shots … only to depart right after in what we’re told appeared to be a nearby waiting vehicle with a separate driver, who our sources say was female.
Melanated Fathers of America would like to send our deepest condolences to his family and fans. This young brother was definitely taken from us too soon.
REST IN PEACE NIPSEY!!!
