Nipsey Hussle’s Killer Fired Off More Shots After Rapper Talked Back

More details are emerging about the death of Nipsey Hussle and Eric Holder, the 29-year-old reportedly responsible for fatally shooting the beloved rap star outside his clothing store in Los Angeles last Sunday afternoon.

According to TMZ, Holder became enraged when Nipsey talked back to him after he fired off two shots that hit the L.A. native.

Via TMZ:

Sources at the scene of Nipsey’s murder tell us … after Eric Holder allegedly shot Nipsey twice and the rapper fell to the ground, Nipsey raised his head and said something to the effect of, “You shot me, you got me, I’m good.”

We’re told Holder — who had already started to walk away — turned around and walked back in Nipsey’s direction when he realized the rapper was still alive. That’s when Holder fired additional shots at Nipsey … those bullets, eyewitnesses believe, that killed him.

The surveillance video shows Nipsey raise his head after the first two shots. Holder approaches him and fires again, back off, then fire again. He then kicks Hussle before running into an alley.

The gunman was arrested two days after the incident and has been charged with 1 count of murder, 2 counts of attempted murder and 1 count of possession of a firearm by a felon. He pleaded not guilty Thursday and his
bond has been set at $ 5 million. Famed attorney Chris Darden is representing him.

According to the LA Times, the woman who drove the getaway car turned herself in to authorities and is said to be cooperating with investigators. At the time of this report, she had not been arrested.

Nipsey’s funeral will take place Thursday (April 11) at the Staples Center.

Holder returns to court May 10. He has been placed in solitary out of fear he’ll be killed by other inmates.

Chris Darden’s Daughter Has Been Harassed Over Her Father Defending Nipsey Hussle’s Alleged Killer

Rapper Nipsey Hussle's Alleged Killer Eric Holder Makes First Court Appearance

Since it has been announced that Chris Darden is defending Nipsey Hussle’s alleged killer, Eric Holder, his daughter Jenee Harden said she has been getting harassed via social media.

She addressed the hostility coming her way via Instagram and said she found out her father is defending Holder on social media with the rest of the world.

“I was not prepared for this backlash that has triggered bad memories from the O.J Simpson Trial,” she wrote. ” My father is a grown man and has been a defense attorney for some time. I have no say in the cases he takes on.”

Harden went on to say that she understands the outrage and pain surrounding Nipsey Hussle’s murder but it doesn’t justify the “vile comments”  that have been thrown her way.

“Instead of attacking me and others who have nothing to do with this case, channel that energy toward continuing Nipsey’s legacy in strengthening our communities and lifting up each other.”

Holder was charged with one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon and has pleaded not guilty to all charges. Holder is accused of shooting Hussle six times outside of his The Marathon clothing store on March 31st. Holder, 29, was arrested on April 2nd.

When the Killer Is Not So Silent

Editor’s Note: This is a republishing of an article from 2009. We mourn the loss of our colleague, journalist Chana Garcia and her brave fight against ovarian cancer. 

The best and worst thing about cancer is life is never the same after you’ve been diagnosed. For me, being healthy used to mean fitting in a lunchtime workout at the gym, but these days, I measure my progress by blood tests and CT scan results. Hearing my doctor utter three mundane words, “Everything looks good,” is like winning a victory lap–the result of enduring dozens of inch-long needles that have ruined my veins, the impending nausea, and the countless days I was too sick to get out of bed.

But somewhere along the way, through the fear, tears, anger, pain, and dizzying realization of my mortality, I shed the vestiges of those overwhelming emotions like a snake sloughs its skin and emerged a winner–a survivor. How I arrived here is a lesson in self-advocacy.

In February of 2008, after suffering weeks of indigestion and bloating, I started seeing a gastroenterologist. Because I celebrated Christmas and New Year’s in Mexico, I thought perhaps I had eaten too many roadside tacos or accidentally drunk the water.

When a prescription for heartburn did little to combat my symptoms by late March, my doctor ordered an ultrasound to determine why I was losing weight while my bloating continued to worsen. He called me when the test revealed two large masses on my ovaries. “One is the size of a softball,” he said, concerned. “You need to get on your gynecologist’s surgery schedule today.”

Panic instantly set in, but when I spoke to my GYN, she thought a cyst she had found on my right ovary years before had simply grown and needed to be removed. She promised to follow up with me when she returned from vacation a week later. I recall her casual response: “Your chances of having ovarian cancer are low.”

Her nonchalance was unsettling, and I insisted on getting answers immediately. I called her office at least five times a day while she was away. I don’t know what I expected her staff to do, but my daily harassment finally prompted the nurse practitioner to administer a CA-125 blood test, which measures the concentration of CA-125, a protein present in malignant tumors. CA-125 is found in greater concentration in ovarian cancer cells and has become one of the more reliable ways to identify and monitor the status of ovarian cancer.

 

09HEALTH-GARCIA2-LIVE

Garcia and her father

Within a week of taking the test, I was diagnosed with ovarian cancer, stage III C——cancer was in both ovaries and had spread to the lymph nodes, and deposits of cancer were seen in my abdomen. Anything beyond stage II is considered advanced. At stage IV, the most advanced phase of ovarian cancer, the disease has usually spread to other organs. At first, I was in disbelief, then shock. After speaking with my surgeon about plans to undergo a full hysterectomy and learning this would make it impossible for me to have children of my own, an overwhelming sadness set in. It’s one thing to choose not to have children; it’s another to have the choice taken from you. To make matters worse, my boyfriend and I had recently been discussing starting a family. Like most women, I envisioned the baby I would carry in my belly and the family we would have together. That’s when my sadness turned into anger.

I wasn’t supposed to be a statistic of ovarian cancer. This is a disease that primarily affects white women over the age of 50. As a 33-year-old black woman, I didn’t fit the bill. I’m an example of what happens when the medical community engages in age- and race-based biases. I don’t think it occurred to my gynecologist, who’s also a young black woman, that ovarian cancer could happen to me.

Raising Awareness Through An Alliance

After an aggressive surgery–called radical debulking–that included a full hysterectomy to remove my tumors, as well as the removal of one of my lymph nodes, I underwent eight rounds of chemotherapy, dropped 25 pounds, and lost all my hair. My treatment regimen was tough. Each cycle included three drugs, given over two weeks, twice a month. The combination fatigued me, but I forced myself to get out of the house. I had no plans to let cancer get the best of me. I walked around my neighborhood, visited my friends and family, and looked forward to the day when I would feel like my old self again. I was determined to fight through all the physical, emotional, and psychological anguish of this beast and to help other unlikely victims become better advocates for their health.

A rare disease, ovarian cancer accounts for about 3% of all cancer diagnoses, but is the fifth leading cause of cancer-related deaths among American women. It’s relatively uncommon in the black community, but as is the case with most cancers, it’s more deadly when it affects us. Black women are often diagnosed in the disease’s later stages and are twice as likely as white women to die from it. With an overall five-year survival rate of 46%, it’s easy to see why the outcomes are more often than not unfavorable.

However, the more research I did, the more women I uncovered beating the odds——such as Barbara Mason, an 18-year survivor from South Carolina; Mary Jackson Scroggins, a 12-year survivor from New York; Kia Riddick-Taylor, a casting director in Florida who has been cancer-free for just over one year; and Sophia Carre, a seven-year survivor in Washington, D.C. These women all had stories like mine. They all sought treatment for seemingly innocuous conditions: bloating, digestive problems, and sudden weight loss or gain——all classic symptoms of ovarian cancer.
This disease has been mistakenly referred to as a “silent killer” because it was once thought to be asymptomatic. But doctors are now realizing that most ovarian cancer patients suffer from gastrointestinal problems at some point before their diagnoses.

Weighing Treatment Options

09HEALTH-GARCIA1-LIVE

Garcia and family members

Making headway in the fight to cure this disease has been slow. Less than 20% of all cases are found in stage I, but with advances in research and treatment options, doctors and clinicians are encouraged.

“[Over the years] there has been increasing evidence that radical debulking is associated with improved survival of patients with advanced ovarian cancer,” says Dr. Kevin Holcomb, associate professor of clinical obstetrics and gynecology at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University and one of black enterprise’s leading doctors (see “America’s Leading Doctors,” May 2008). “It’s important for women with ovarian cancer to seek out doctors who have experience in treating the disease.”

There is some promising research with the medical drug thalidomide, which was used during the 1950s to treat insomnia and a host of other ailments, but was known to cause severe birth defects. Dr. Levi Downs Jr., a leading researcher at the Masonic Cancer Center at the University of Minnesota, has been at the forefront of this clinical trial effectively using thalidomide in tandem with chemotherapy to treat patients whose cancer is recurrent–about 70% to 90% of all ovarian cancer cases. According to Downs, 30% of his patients have seen a complete response, meaning their cancer “went away.” Others he’s treated are showing longer cancer-free periods.

The medical community has also seen significant improvements among patients with ovarian cancer who are treated with intraperitoneal, or IP, therapy, in which chemotherapy drugs are delivered directly into the abdomen. Dr. Carol Brown, gynecologic oncologist and associate attending surgeon at Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, and another of be’s leading doctors, says, over the last few years, IP has become standard care for some ovarian cancer patients and has been shown to improve survival rates. Other drugs such as Avastin, commonly called a “smart bomb” drug because it cuts off the blood supply to cancerous tumors, are also improving the outlook for many patients.

Of equal importance is a patient’s personal vigilance: paying attention to your body, making sure you keep regular checkups, asking your doctor questions, seeking a second or third opinion, and speaking up when you suspect something is wrong. Personal vigilance is the most important lesson I learned from this experience. Had I not pressured the staff at my GYN’s office, my prognosis could have been fatal.

Fortunately, my pathology came back better than expected and I was diagnosed with a borderline tumor, which is a low-malignant form of the disease. I’m still undergoing treatment, but I’m on the road to recovery.

When I need a bit of encouragement to get through a tough day, I turn to the community of ovarian cancer survivors and our advocates who’ve become like my second family. An unfortunate circumstance may have brought us together, but it gave us a voice to inspire change and promote awareness.

Some of the photos show women with sad eyes with smudged mascara. Details such as his victims’ eye and hair color are eerie. Some look calm. Others look terrified. One is smiling. They are all wearing lipstick.

Samsung’s foldable phone rumored to have killer specs and a massive battery

Galaxy F Specs

Samsung unveiled its first ever foldable smartphone last month, but it was hardly a proper announcement. Samsung showed off the phone’s Infinity Flex screen design, revealed the phone would have a large screen on the inside and a smaller one on the outside, and demoed bits and pieces of the new interface it developed with Google for the unnamed phone.

That’s about everything Samsung was willing to tell us about the phone, leaving plenty of things out of this first foldable phone presentation. However, a report that talks in great detail about the future of foldable devices also shares new information about Samsung’s new phone, including camera and battery specs.

Catching the Hidden Serial Killer in ‘Red Dead Redemption 2’

There’s a serial killer on the loose in Red Dead Redemption 2. You may have seen his “works of art” close to Valentine. The game won’t point you in the right direction here. You’ll have to find him and catch him yourself. But he does have one weakness.

Like most pop culture serial killers, this one is just begging to be caught. But it’ll take the right detective to figure out the clues. He wants his genius to be understood — but of course, that’ll be his downfall.

Each victim the RDR2 serial killer leaves out in the world has a clue nearby. Usually shoved inside a facial orifice, but not always the same one — it’s a surprise each time!

Much like the first mysterious shack, RDR2’s first serial killer victim is quite close to one of the starting areas, designed to pique your interest so you keep an Eagle Eye out for more…

As Gory As RDR2 Gets

The first of these clues is on the ride from Horseshoe Overlook to Valentine. Many players will stumble on it in their early game back-and-forth. If you load up the map nearby, a simple marker named “corpse” can be seen.


Serial killer clue first one map RDR2
Find the first clue from the serial killer here, southeast of Valentine.

Travelling below the train tracks will reveal the body, or what’s left of it. If you find the severed head, you’ll get the clue: one third of a map that leads to… something.


Serial killer clue Valentine railroad tracks Horseshoe Overlook RDR2
Postmodern expressionism, the artist clearly feels shackled and… dismembered.

But unlike most quests, there’s nothing to signpost where the next steps are. This is one of the rare mysteries in RDR2 that you either find yourself, or you miss.

Humans Don’t Have That Many Organs

Not too far away, in the land of the Braithwaites, there’s a corpse on the edge of the plantation property. There are actually so many body parts scattered around, we think more than one killing has taken place to signal this clue. There’s also a lot of blood, providing a trail to follow.


Serial killer clue two Braithwaite Manor RDR2
Eagle Eye helps, but you can follow the trail of blood.

True to form, there’s a disembodied head nearby, with a scroll stuffed into a novelty face-hole. It’s the second third of the map. Here’s where to find it from Braithwaite Manor:


Serial killer second clue RDR2 Braithwaite Manor map
Just a little bit southeast of Braithwaite Manor is where you can find the second serial killer clue.

But we still need the third piece…

Third Crime’s a Charm

Back towards Valentine, if you go southwest and a bit south of Wallace Station, you’ll come across the third clue deep into the woods.


Serial killer third clue map Wallace Station
Find the third clue here, where the serial killer has left another morbid present.

Follow the same formula, and use your Eagle Eye if you get lost.


Serial killer clue three RDR2
We see. And we cannot unsee.

Once your map is fully put together, it’ll look like this:


Serial killer full map RDR2
On the back of the full serial killer map are the words CAN YOU FIND ME.

This just so happens to look like a run down shack that’s quite close to Valentine. Once you’re there, you can open up the basement to find the serial killer’s dwelling. There also appears to be a safe combination, but Arthur will use that to open the serial killer’s locked door.

Finding the RDR2 Serial Killer

Investigate the serial killer’s hideout, and in the very back there’ll be a knife you can inspect. Doing so will trigger a cutscene in which the serial killer will attack you.

He’s not too hard to fight off, and you can hogtie him and take him back to the sheriff’s office in Valentine to collect your reward.

Trust a serial killer to get all weird, and when the sheriff tries to put him into his cell, he goes full Hannibal and tries to take a bite out of the sheriff’s neck. You’d almost think it was the vampire quest… but more on that one later.

Dead Eye makes it pretty easy to pop the serial killer in the head and save the sheriff. He’ll reward you for your trouble with a stack of bills. It’s not as much as you get from robbing a train, but at least the people of Valentine are a little safer now — until you next decide to rob them.

Robin Actor Says Batman Is a Killer in DC’s Titans

While talking to IGN about his role in the upcoming live-action Titans show on the DC Universe subscription service, Dick Grayson/Robin actor Brenton Thwaites explained that it was Batman’s murderous methods that drove Robin away, which is why the show finds Robin fighting crime solo in Detroit instead of Gotham.

“Batman is a killer and Robin wants to get away from that,” Thwaites said. “The idea is that he doesn’t want to become a killer himself. And although these guys that he’s fighting are bad and they deserve, you know, they deserve what he’s dishing out, it seems, he believes that when you kill someone you crossed the line and you become almost as bad as them, so it’s pretty clear in the series that he was with Batman, Batman crossed the line and he was teaching me to do the same thing, and he’s trying to break away from that.”
