Eric Holder, Who Allegedly Killed Nipsey Hussle, Attacked in Prison by Two Inmates

The man who is on trial suspected of killing Hip-Hop entrepreneur Nipsey Hussle was reportedly physically assaulted earlier this week.

According to Rolling Stone, the suspected killer, Eric Holder, was expected to testify on Tuesday in the ongoing trial accusing him of murdering Nipsey had been attacked while being transported from the court back to prison. He was unable to testify on Tuesday due to the injuries he suffered from the attack.

The New York Post reported that the 32-year-old defendant was attacked by two inmates after he left the courtroom and was transported back to the facility around 4 p.m. on Monday.

His public defender, Aaron Jansen stated that Holder required medical attention for the injuries as he suffered a cut from the back of his head with a razor. He told Rolling Stone that he had been “attacked by two inmates and beaten” during the assault. “He was cut with a razor in the back of his head and received three staples. His face is swollen and his eye is swollen.”

Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge H. Clay Jack told the jury that Tuesday’s session was canceled due to “unforeseen circumstances” and directed them to return the next day.

The trial is heading into his third week. Two weeks ago, according to The Associated Press, a Los Angeles prosecutor told jurors that Holder pre-meditated the 2019 killing of Nipsey. The two men were having a discussion where Nipsey expressed to Holder there were rumors that he was a “snitch” and he should “clear that up.”

Deputy District Attorney John McKinney shared that narrative during his opening statement and stated that there is “no doubt” that Holder knew beforehand that he would kill Hussle. He told the courtroom that Holder shot Nipsey at least 10 times and kicked the rapper in the head before fleeing the scene.

“He clearly thought about what he was going to do before he did it,” McKinney told jurors about Holder’s intentions.

The 32-year-old Holder is facing one count of first-degree murder and two counts of attempted first-degree murder. Several witnesses told police officers and grand jurors that Holder walked up to Hussle and gunned him down.
