Nipsey Hussle Murder Trial To Begin

Media Take Out Staff |

The trial for Nipsey Hussle’s killer is about to begin.

A jury is set to hear opening statements this morning in the trial of Eric Ronald Holder Jr.

Holder is charged with gunning down Nipsey Hussle outside his Marathon clothing store in the Hyde Park area of Los Angeles.

In 2019, Holder was indicted on one count each of murder and possession of a firearm by a felon and two counts each of attempted murder and assault with a firearm.

The prosecutor told the grand jury that Holder approached Hussle — whose real name was Ermias Joseph Asghedom — and that it “had something to do with Mr. Asghedom accusing Mr. Holder of snitching, which, in the gang world, is a very serious offense.”

“Apparently the conversation had something to do with Mr. Asghedom telling Mr. Holder that word on the street was that Mr. Holder was snitching. The conversation wasn’t particularly intense, it wasn’t particularly belligerent and it lasted for about four minutes.”

Holder returned moments later with a weapon and shot Nipsey, killing him.
