Less than a day after his death, surveillance footage from the scene of Nipsey Hussle’s murder has been leaked online.
On Monday afternoon (April 1), TMZ posted the surveillance video from the scene. In the video, you can see a group of people outside of Nipsey Hussle’s Marathon Clothing Store. Someone who appears to be the murder suspect approaches the group and what appears to be flashes of light come from the possible suspect as he approaches Nipsey and the rest of the group. At least one person falls to the ground after being shot. We are unsure whether the man who fell is Nipsey as two other people were also shot.
The New York Daily News reported that law enforcement sources believe Nipsey’s killer was someone he knew. The same sources believe that Nipsey’s shooting death will be classified as a gang-related one. The source also says police don’t believe the shooting was committed by someone from a rival gang. The insider believes this was a personal “deal gone wrong.” A suspect has yet to be arrested, though the source says police believe they have their man.
