Suspect in killing of Nipsey Hussle urged to surrender

Los Angeles police Chief Michel Moore has called on the suspect in the killing of rapper Nipsey Hussle to surrender.

The chief told a televised press conference Tuesday that he was confident 29-year-old suspect Eric Holder was watching.

Moore urged Holder to go to a police station and turn himself in.

Moore says he was devastated by the killing of Hussle, who was shot outside his South Los Angeles clothing store on Sunday, a day before they were to have a meeting about the relationship between police and the inner city.

The chief says the attacker had repeatedly walked up to the artist and spoke to him, and then returned with a gun and opened fire.

Moore says Holder fled in a car driven by an unidentified woman.
