Rapper Nipsey Hussle and the man accused of killing him talked about “snitching” before the rap star was shot dead, according to court documents released Thursday, media reports said.
The more than 500 pages of grand jury testimony released by a Los Angeles County Superior Court judge contain the first chronology of the March 31 attack in which Hussle, 33, was shot multiple times and two others were wounded by gunfire.
Eric Ronald Holder, 29, pleaded not guilty on April 4 to charges of killing the Grammy Award-nominated rapper, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom, and was ordered held on $5 million bail.
After the talk about snitching, Hussle’s accused shooter left in a car then returned a half-hour later and shot Hussle outside of his clothing store in south Los Angeles, the court papers said, according to media accounts.
“You got me,” Hussle reportedly said after he fell. The gunman then kicked him twice in the head before fleeing.
According to the papers, Hussle spent part of the afternoon signing autographs and taking photos with fans outside of his store, the Times and other media reported, including taking a selfie with the woman who drove Holder to the parking lot.
If convicted, Holder faces a maximum sentence of life in prison without the possibility of parole.
