Holder and Hussle were in an argument outside The Marathon Clothing when Holder left and returned with a gun, Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore said.

The suspect then allegedly ran to a getaway vehicle, driven by an unidentified woman.

After the shooting, Holder fled to an alleyway, where he got in a white 2016 Chevy Cruze, which was driven by an unidentified woman.

"I'm lacking information that a shooting occurred", the chief said.

HollywoodLife will continue to share updates about the shooting death of Nipsey Hussle as more details are confirmed.

The No. 2-seeded Kentucky Wildcats held on against the No. 3- seeded Houston Cougars, 62-58, in a Friday night Sweet 16 battle. Coby White and Cameron Johnson each had 15 points for the Tar Heels, who shot just 43 per cent and made 7 of 28 three-pointers.

Hundreds gathered outside of the crime scene to pay their respects to Nipsey, but a stampede broke out Monday night after a man allegedly brandished a firearm and several people were injured. Two other men were also shot, though they survived their injuries.

An autopsy completed Monday showed that Hussle, 33, died after being shot in the head and torso.

There were initial reports of gunshots, but police quickly knocked down those reports.

According to Mayor Eric Garcetti, Nipsey's death was part of a spike in violence in Los Angeles over the past week, with 11 homicides.

It was a sobering moment for those gathered there to hear about the magnanimity of a talented Black man. Moore urged the public to "bring peace" as he detailed the timeline of Hussle's murder and called the area where Nipsey was killed "sacred ground". Two other people were wounded in the shooting, police said.

Hussle made no secret of his early life in a street gang, saying in a 2014 interview with YouTube channel Vlad TV that he had joined the Rollin' 60s, a notorious Crips gang clique, as a teenager.

"Nipsey is an example for all of us that any life lost is one life too many", he said.

"I could not believe it", Moore said.
