The surveillance video footage that captured the moment Nipsey Hussle was shot and killed has circulated throughout the internet, yet TMZ reports that there are tapes authorities have in their possession that have not been made available to the public. What is known is that Eric Holder, the suspect in the case, approached Nipsey, shot him multiple times at point blank range, and then ran off to a nearby alley where he jumped into an awaiting car driven by a woman.
Throughout the investigation, there have been reports that the driver of the getaway car has been cooperative with police, alleging that she had no idea that anyone was going to get hurt, let alone killed. The driver’s identity has yet to be acknowledged publicly by police, although internet sleuths have tracked down and identified who they believe she is. She has not been arrested or charged in connection with Nipsey’s murder.

Meanwhile, TMZ claims that they have watched surveillance footage of the neighboring alley near the Marathon Clothing Store where Nipsey was gunned down, and according to them, it looks as if whoever was behind the steering wheel of the getaway car was waiting to take off in a hurry.
“You see the shooter race down an alley to the waiting car,” TMZ writes. “The killer stops at the car for a second, then gets inside the passenger seat and the driver floors it. It’s apparent from the video … the driver was waiting to bolt from the scene.” They also say that their law enforcement sources claim there is still confusion over whether or not the woman was informed of the killer’s intent or if she had knowledge that he was carrying a gun.
