Nipsey Hussle was killed yesterday in Los Angeles.
The suspect is still on the loose. Police believe he was a member of Nipsey's inner circle and the incident was "personal in nature. There is speculation the suspect killed Nipsey after Hussle called him out for being a snitch.
Update: LAPD says no shots fired. But there was a fight with multiple injuries.
