The trial of Eric Holder is finally underway in Los Angeles
Holder is charged with killing Nipsey Hussle.
Prosecutors say Holder -- who had been friends with Nipsey -- was angry that Nipsey suggested he was a snitch during a conversation in front of Nipsey's Marathon Clothing store in Crenshaw on March 31, 2019. So Holder left the scene for a brief lunch, returned with two guns, and shot Nipsey to death.
Shermi Villanueva was standing next to Nispey during Nip's execution, and he heard Nip's last words.
“He shot me. He shot me," Villanueva told the court Nip said as he lay in a pool of blood.
Holder also shot Villanueva and Villanueva's uncle, but they both survived their injuries.
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.
The 32-year-old has pleaded not guilty to all of the charges and faces life in prison if convicted.
The trial continues tomorrow.
