The killer of Los Angeles rapper, Ermias Asghedom well known as Nipsey Hussle has been found guilty of murdering the rising artist, on Wednesday.
The man who shot the singer, Eric Holder was convicted by a jury in California, after six hours of deliberations.
It could be recalled that the 32-year-old carried out the inhumane act, minutes after a brief argument outside his LA clothing store, in 2019.
Sources disclosed that the 33-year-old who people paid tributes to from across the music industry had reportedly known the killer for several years.
The chances of Holder getting life in prison when he is sentenced in September are high, since he was also found guilty of two counts of attempted manslaughter as two other men were shot in the incident.
Meanwhile, it was also revealed that he belonged to the same street gang as Hussle and had previously admitted to killing him.
According to witnesses he left the scene after a ten-minute argument, in which Hussle warned him of rumours that he was co-operating with police, and returned with two handguns.
