LAPD sources have revealed that the suspect in the Nipsey Hussle murder was known to Nipsey, and that the motive was likely "personal" in nature.
Law enforcement sources told the Los Angeles Times they believed the killer was someone in the rap star’s orbit. Detectives believe the gunman has gang ties but that the motive is likely personal in nature rather than a larger gang feud. The sources spoke on the condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to comment on the case publicly.
This lines up with inside information that we've been getting.
According to our sources, the suspect was a member of Nipsey's crew. About an hour before the incident, Nipsey kicked him out of his store and told him to stay away for good because they had discovered paperwork suggesting he's a snitch. The suspect left but came back firing.
Update: Our sources say the gunman was Lil Shitty. (Yes, really.) He also goes by Fly Mac. Here's a photo.
Here's surveillance video of the incident:
