One person was killed and multiple people were injured after a procession celebrating the life of Nipsey Hussle memorial service in Los Angeles yesterday (April 11), police say. There were no reports of violence on the procession itself, The LA Times reports. The shooting took place at the intersection of 103 St. and Main St., LAPD Chief of Police Michel Moore revealed. Moore tweeted that the shooting occurred “in the midst of the procession,” though The LA Times says “there are no indications at this time that the violence was connected to the memorial” and CNN reports that the shooting occurred “near the procession route.”
Four people were shot. Victims were described as three men and one woman between the ages of 30 to 50. It’s currently unknown who died.
Nipsey Hussle died on March 31 after being shot multiple times outside his Marathon Clothing store in L.A. Eric Holder, 29, was arrested and charged with Nipsey’s murder. He has pleaded not guilty.
During an April 2 vigil at Marathon Clothing, multiple people were injured after a reported stampede.
In the midst of this procession we have a multi-4 Shooting at 103 St and Main St.
Victims are 3 Male Blacks and 1 Female Black – ages from 30-50 years old. Tragically one is deceased.
Suspects in gray Hyundai fired on the victims.
We must stop this senseless violence.
