Nipsey Hussle was killed in a shooting outside his clothing store in Los Angeles, multiple law enforcement sources said. Two other men were in serious condition, and a suspect remained at large.
No further information was immediately available about the shooting at Marathon Clothing on Slauson Avenue in South Los Angeles. But just a couple of hours before, Hussle, 33, whose real name was Ermias Ashgedom, had tweeted, “Having strong enemies is a blessing.”
Nipsey is romantically involved with actress Lauren London the two began dating in 2013, and welcomed their first child together on August 31, 2016. London had a child from a previous relationship with fellow rapper Lil Wayne, while Hussle had young daughter named Emani.
As news spread that Hussle had been shot, numerous performers and athletes, including LeBron James, 50 Cent and Steph Curry, quickly tweeted best wishes:
