Eric Holder, the man suspected of killing rapper Nipsey Hussle, was charged Thursday, April 4 with murder and two counts of attempted murder, over the deadly attack outside the star’s South Los Angeles clothing store on Sunday.

The lawyer representing him entered a “not guilty” plea on his client’s behalf for the murder of Hussle.

Chris Darden, a former district attorney who was one of the prosecutors in the OJ Simpson trial, wouldn’t comment about the case, or the plea.

As reported, Holder, 29, was arrested Tuesday, a nearly 48-hour manhunt.

Authorities say Holder and Hussle, who knew each other, had several conversations Sunday outside the rapper’s South LA clothing store. They say Holder eventually returned with a handgun and shot Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom.

The 33-year-old suffered fatal wounds to the head and torso and he was later declared dead at an area hospital.
