1 stabbed, 19 injured as violence breaks out at Nipsey Hussle vigil

One person was stabbed and others sustained injuries from unknown causes after violence broke out during a vigil Monday evening at The Marathon Clothing, the South Los Angeles boutique where Hussle was gunned down one day earlier.

A USA TODAY reporter witnessed one male stabbing victim lying on the ground, along with a woman who appeared to have been stabbed.

First responders transported 19 injured people with at least two critically injured, Los Angeles Fire Department spokesperson Margaret Stewart told USA TODAY. At least one injury was caused by a car hitting a pedestrian.

The LAFD said a reported shooting call came in at 8:14 PST, although police later said there was no evidence of shots fired.

LAPD names Eric Holder a suspect; surveillance-camera footage found

Late Monday night, the LAPD  also put a name and face to the suspect at the center of Monday’s manhunt: Eric Holder.

The department issued a tweet overnight with Holder’s photo and said he fled the scene in a white, 4-door 2016 Chevy Cruze sedan with California license plate 74JD742. The tweet asked that anyone with information call the South Bureau Homicide unit at (323) 786-5100 or submit a tip at lacrimestoppers.org.

TMZ and CNN obtained security-camera footage from a nearby business that shows the suspect walking up to Hussle and two other men in front of his clothing store at about 3:20 p.m. PDT and firing at them multiple times before running to an alley and fleeing into a waiting car driven by an unidentified female.
