It didn’t take long for Los Angeles police to track down the man they believe is responsible for Nipsey Hussle’s death. Eric Holder, the alleged killer, has been behind bars for over the past month and a half awaiting trial. As more information emerges on his case, TMZ reports that he was indicted on additional charges by a Grand Jury earlier today.
Eric Holder was already hit with charges related to four crimes but now, the D.A revisited the case with a Grand Jury who’ve indicted him on the four crimes he was charged with as well as two more. The previous charges included murder, 2 counts of attempted murder, and possession of a firearm by a felon. Following the indictment, Holder’s also been charged with two counts of assault with a firearm for the victims who did not die.

There hasn’t been an exact reason why the D.A. decided to go to the Grand Jury, it likely has to do with skipping the preliminary hearing where a judge has to find probable cause of a crime for the defendant to stand trial. However, it’s done at times if there are issues with the evidence.
Unfortunately for Holder, this isn’t the only headline he’s made today. News broke out that he allegedly pistol-whipped a man shortly before Nipsey’s death. Holder allegedly pistol-whipped his neighbor after accusing him of selling laced weed.
