Eric Holder, the man who allegedly murdered rapper Nipsey Hussle on Sunday (Mar. 31), has his bond set at $7,040,000. According to TMZ, Holder, 29, is being held in solitary confinement, as the police fear for his life due to the severity of his alleged crime. He was captured and taken into police custody on Tuesday (Apr. 2).
“We’re told police refuse to let Holder mingle with the general population, because they believe he’s a target,” the gossip site reads. “As it is, cops were in a race to arrest him before someone on the street took him out. Our sources also say he’ll remain in solitary once he’s transferred to L.A. County Jail while awaiting trial.”
According to sources from TMZ as well as an alleged friend of the deceased, Hussle’s death had nothing to do with a government conspiracy. The Victory Lap rapper reportedly confronted Holder (street name “Shitty Cuz”) on allegations that he was a snitch.
“This was a man getting confronted about his past, told him he was a snitch,” Hussle’s reported friend said. ‘”Don’t come around with that… not that nobody was gonna harm him for being a snitch…’ [that was] Nipsey on some solid sh*t, and the n***a couldn’t handle that in his heart. He came back in and touched this young brother, man.”
