  • Nipsey Hussle Reportedly Shot In Front Of His Clothing Shop

He was rushed to a hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

As the sun went down on Sunday, candles flickered and flowers accumulated on the sidewalk outside Nipsey Hussle's Hyde Park store, Marathon Clothing.

Early reports indicate that the All Money In No Money Out, Inc. founder was struck multiple times. "One of those victims died at the local hospital, the other two are listed in stable condition". Hussle owns a store called Marathon Clothing at 3420 W. Slauson.

The suspected shooter is allegedly still at large, with TMZ reporting the attack was gang related.

Hussle's debut studio album, "Victory Lap" was nominated for Best Rap Album at this year's Grammy Awards. More details about the Grammy-nominated artist's death will be available when a full autopsy report is released.

Nipsey Hussle whose real name was Ermias Davidson Asghedom was of Eritrean heritage.

News of his death prompted an outpouring of tributes from shocked stars from the world of music and sport, who hailed Hussle's talent and community work. He has since become a community organizer who was involved in the recently launched Destination Crenshaw arts project.

Born in 1985, Hussle has released multiple mixtapes, but released Victory Lap past year.

Hussle had spoken of his affiliation with the Rollin' 60s Crips, though the motive of the shooting remains unclear.

Moments before being shot the rapper had tweeted, "Having strong enemies is a blessing".

Hundreds of mourners flooded the parking lot outside of the store, at one point repeatedly chanting "Nipsey".

The rapper leaves behind a partner, actress Lauren London, and two children. We have lost another brilliant black man to senseless gun violence.

"I grew up in gang culture".
