According to news agencies, Eric Holder was found guilty of first-degree murder in the shooting death of Grammy-nominated rapper Nipsey Hussle on Wednesday 

About six hours of deliberation led to a verdict from the jury. 

Two bystanders were shot and Holder, 32, was also charged with attempted first-degree murder, but a jury found him guilty only of attempted voluntary manslaughter. 

Eric Holder Convicted In Death of Rapper Nipsey Hussle 

Hussle, whose name was Ermias Asghedom, was shot and killed in March of 2019 outside his clothing store in Los Angeles. 

Last month, when the trial first started, the prosecution claimed that Holder's attack was planned in advance.  

Deputy District Attorney John McKinney told the Associated Press that there was "no doubt" Holder intended to kill Hussle and that Holder shot him at least 10 times and kicked him in the head before fleeing the scene. 

According to a report by the Associated Press, Hussle wanted to "clear that up" with Holder because he had heard rumors that Holder was a snitch.
