Eric Holder, the man accused of gunning down west coast rapper/activist Nipsey Hussle has pleaded not guilty in court.

Holder pleaded not guilty during his arraignment to one count of murder, two counts of attempted murder and one count of possession of a firearm by a felon. hearing on Thursday. He is currently being represented by Christopher Darden, who served on the prosecution team with Marcia Clark in O.J. Simpson's double murder trial in 1995.

As well as allegedly killing Hussle, he also shot at Kerry Lathan and Shermi Cervabta Villanueva—who were both standing outside of his 'Marathon' clothing store with him. 

Holder's bail has been set at $7.04 million according to the Los Angeles County inmate database.

His next hearing is scheduled to take place on May 10.

Holder, 29, of Los Angeles, was taken into police custody Tuesday and the police have described a dispute between Holder and Hussle of a "personal nature" and said Holder appeared in front of Hussle's clothing store more than once before shooting him.
