A Los Angeles judge ruled to unseal documents regarding the death of rapper Nipsey Hussle

NBC News reports attorneys for the suspect Eric Holder Jr. argued unsealing the grand jury transcripts of the case would negatively influence the shooter's trial.

"Everything in the transcript is of an incriminating nature," L.A. County Deputy District Attorney John McKinney said Thursday.

On March 31, Holder reportedly shot the 33-year-old community activist and rapper in front of his Marathon Clothing store. The shooting reportedly took place after the two men spoke about Holder allegedly being a police informant. 

“Apparently, the conversation had something to do with [Hussle] telling Mr. Holder that word on the street was that Mr. Holder was snitching,” McKinney told the grand jury. “The conversation wasn’t particularly intense. It wasn’t particularly belligerent.”

Holder was arrested two days later and charged with murder and two counts of attempted murder. He was also charged with a count of possession of a firearm by a felon. A month later, a grand jury added several other charges including assault and assault with a firearm. 

According to The Los Angeles Times, Holder and a woman pulled into a parking lot on the day of the shooting.

The Los Angeles Times reports Holder bought food from a local burger restaurant. He spotted Hussle and approached him as he spoke with others. The 29-year-old and Hussle reportedly spoke for four minutes. During the conversation, the subject of snitching was brought up. Soon after, the suspected gunman returned with a firearm and shot Hussle along with two other men. 

The Eritrean-American rapper's death was felt by members of his southern Los Angeles community. Local gangs have negotiated a truce to create peace in his name.  

Holder is currently held on a bail set at $6.53 million. If convicted as charged, he faces a maximum sentence of life in state prison.
