Born Ermias Ashgedom, Nipsey was killed outside of his store after a gunman fired six shots at the 33-year-old. After a two-day search for the assailant, Eric Holder was arrested Tuesday for murdering the Grammy-nominated rapper. Per an earlier Blavity report, the 29-year-old allegedly shot Nipsey and two other people over an undisclosed personal dispute. An unidentified associate was one of the other two individuals struck by Holder's bullets.

Nipsey's death was felt across various industries, and people are honoring the late father of two in various ways. Oklahoma City Thunder player Russell Westbrook achieved a rare double triple-double Tuesday and dedicated the historic occasion to his fellow California native.
