Hussle, real name Ermias Asghedom, was gunned down on March 31 outside his Marathon Clothing store in South Los Angeles. Two other men were injured in the shooting.

After a two-day manhunt, 29-year-old Eric Holder was arrested in connection with the shooting.

Holder has been charged with one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon, according to Los Angeles County prosecutors. He pleaded not guilty last week, and is being held on $5 million bail.
