UPDATE 4/3/19 11:30 AM EST:

Authorities have placed Nipsey Hussle’s alleged murderer Eric Holder in solitary confinement.

According to TMZ, law enforcement officials cite fear for his safety among the general population of the jail. LAPD wanted to arrest Holder as quickly as possible, believing that it was more than likely several people were looking to murder him in retaliation for Nipsey’s murder.

Once Holder has been transferred to the L.A. Country Jail to await trial, he’ll remain in solitary confinement until it is determined his safety is no longer a concern. His bond has been set at $7,040,000.

The unidentified woman who drove the getaway vehicle for Holder went to LAPD on Tuesday. She was released without charges but could be charged in the future.

Eric Holder, the man suspected of killing Nispey Hussle, has been captured in Bellflower, Calif. According to CBS LA, the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department was caught by officers sometime before 1:30 p.m. PST.

Los Angeles police have identified 29-year-old Eric Holder as a suspect in the murder of Nipsey Hussle on Sunday.

Law enforcement officials say Holder got into a dispute with Hussle before the shooting, alleging that Holder shot Hussle and two other men before returning back to the scene and firing several more shots at Hussle before ultimately kicking him and taking off.

Surveillance footage released Monday evening shows Holder allegedly walking up to Hussle and others outside The Marathon Clothing store at 3:20 PST in South Central, Los Angeles.

The information regarding Holder comes mere hours after a vigil was held for the rapper, born Ermias Asghedom outside of the shopping strip he owned. Other gatherings took place across the country including in New York, spearheaded by Dave East.
