The suspect wanted in the shooting death of Nipsey Hussle was named as Eric Holder of Los Angeles. On Monday night, police released a statement saying the 29-year-old was last seen in a 2016 white four-door Chevy Cruze with the California license plate 7RJD742.

Police urged the public to help locate the suspect, who is believed to have shot Hussle on Sunday afternoon in the 3400 block of West Slauson Avenue. Hussle was shot multiple times in the parking lot at Marathon Clothing. The Los Angeles Police Department earlier said the suspect fled from the scene into an adjacent alley where a vehicle was waiting.

Police also released a photo of Holder, who goes by the nicknames Shitty Cuz and Fly Mac.

Detectives said that anyone with information related to Holder's whereabouts or the deadly shooting is urged to contact South Bureau Homicide at 323-786-5100. Anyone wishing to remain anonymous can call the LA Regional Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS. Alternatively, tipsters can go directly to

The identification comes as hundreds of fans and local residents came out to the store location Monday to mourn the rapper's death. By late evening, the crowd grew unruly and a stampede broke out after a disturbance. There were also inaccurate reports of gunshots being fired during the vigil.

“Our people are on scene making every effort 2 protect everyone in attendance at the Nipsey Hussle vigil,” LAPD Chief Michel Moore said on Twitter. “Reports of shots fired at the vigil do not appear to be accurate. We do have injured in the chaos and are attempting to restore order.”

He added: “Our appreciation to those from our community actively working with members at the vigil to quell violence. Their work is vital.”

Two other men were also injured in the shooting incident Sunday.

Los Angeles Police Commissioner Steve Soboroff said Sunday night he and Moore were scheduled to meet with Hussle and representatives of Roc Nation, Jay-Z's entertainment agency and production company, on Monday to "talk about ways he could help stop gang violence and help us help kids." Hussle's debut studio album, "Victory Lap," was nominated for Best Rap Album at this year's Grammy Awards.

According to reports, Moore was expected to hold a news conference Tuesday to discuss updates in the investigation.​
