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 Radar 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.

Holder is also accused of wounding two other men during the attack, authorities said.

If convicted, Holder faces life in prison.
