Nipsey Hussle Dead At 33 after reportedly being shot in the Hyde Park neighborhood of LA.
ORIGINAL: Rapper Nipsey Hussle, 33, was shot outside of his clothing shop Marathon Store in the Hyde Park neighborhood in Los Angeles on Mar. 31, multiple sources told TMZ. While his condition is currently unknown, law enforcement review that three people were shot, and one of those victims has since passed away: “At approximately 3:20 pm there was a shooting reported in the area of Slauson Ave and Crenshaw Blvd. 3 victims were transported to a local hospital where one was pronounced deceased. We have no suspect info at this time and will provide more details as they become available.” However, it’s still unclear if the deceased victim was Nipsey or not.
Earlier in Feb., Nipsey’s girlfriend Lauren London told HollywoodLife EXCLUSIVELY what makes her and the rapper such a powerful couple. “I think we’re both powerful individuals so I think that we’re both strong individuals and we know that we have to be individuals first and then we get together and pour into the couple cup,” Lauren told us, adding that their typical date night is “probably chill”: “We like to relax.”
Less than an hour before the shooting, Nipsey tweeted a message about his “enemies,” writing, “Having strong enemies is a blessing.” Police are reportedly looking for a black male in his 20s, who approached Nipsey on foot before leaving in a nearby car with a female, according to TMZ. Our hearts go out to Nipsey’s friends and family during this incredibly difficult time.
