Suspect in killing of Nipsey Hussle urged to surrender

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Los Angeles police Chief Michel Moore has called on the suspect in the killing of rapper Nipsey Hussle to surrender.

The chief told a televised press conference Tuesday that he was confident 29-year-old suspect Eric Holder was watching.

Moore urged Holder to go to a police station and turn himself in.

Moore says he was devastated by the killing of Hussle, who was shot outside his South Los Angeles clothing store on Sunday, a day before they were to have a meeting about the relationship between police and the inner city.

The chief says the attacker had repeatedly walked up to the artist and spoke to him, and then returned with a gun and opened fire.

Moore says Holder fled in a car driven by an unidentified woman.
