The LAPD share details about Nipsey Hussle's murder.
Nipsey Hussle's getting the praise he rightfully deserves following his death on Sunday. The LAPD held a press conference earlier today to discuss the details pertaining to Nipsey's death including information on the alleged shooter as well as details about the meeting that was supposed to take place with the police department, the rapper, and Roc Nation. L.A. Police Commissioner Steve Soboroff read the e-mail that was sent to the LAPD that was either from Nipsey or Roc Nation requesting a meeting to help build better community relations.
"Our goal is to work with the department to help improve communication, relationships and work toward changing the culture and dialogue between LAPD and the inner city," Soboroff said. "We want to hear about your new program and your goals for the department, as well as how we can help stop gang violence and help you help kids."
Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti praised Nipsey Hussle as a "gifted and brilliant artist" and an entrepreneur who found global success."
"He was a tireless advocate for the young people of this city and of this world, to lift them up with the possibility of not being imprisoned by where you come from, or past mistakes, but the possibility of what comes in the future," Garcetti said.
Details about Nipsey's murder were revealed by the LAPD Chief Michel Moore who said that he doesn't believe that murder was gang-related or had anything to do with gang activities. He said that the LAPD still isn't sure of whether the shooter fled L.A. or if he's still in the city but he Moore did urge the suspect, Eric Holder, to surrender.
