Nipsey Hussle's Alleged Killer's Bail Set At Over $7 Million
The man who is suspected of murdering Nipsey Hussle was arrested on Tuesday (April 2nd), and according to Rap-Up, his bail has been set at over $7 million. Eric Holder was transferred into LAPD custody late Tuesday night after being captured by the L.A. County Sheriff in Bellflower, California outside of a mental health facility. Once Holder was booked, his bail was set at $7,040,000.00.
Holder was placed in, and will remain in solitary confinement because police see him as a target. He will be kept away from anyone who may want to seek out revenge for Nipsey’s death.
According to The Blast, law enforcement officials are aware that "lots of people don’t like him right now," so he will be in solitary until he is to appear in court.
On another note, Holder has a criminal history, which includes weapons charges and domestic violence.
It was also revealed on Wednesday (April 3rd) that Nipsey was at his Marathon Clothing store on Sunday (March 31st) because he was trying to help out a friend who had just been released from prison after 20 years by hooking him up with some new clothes. Nipsey’s friend is one of the two other people who were injured during the shooting. The third person was reportedly the friend’s nephew, who drove him to the store. Nipsey going to the store was a spur of the moment decision and he apparently did not notify his team or primary security guard that he was leaving home.
