Kerry Lathan, the man who was shot alongside Nipsey Hussle, is now speaking out.

Kerry is currently in prison. Police violated his parole, because they claim he was hanging out with Nipsey Hussle - a known "gang member."

Kerry claims that he was just in the wrong place at the wrong time, and that he should be free. 

The former gang member was released from prison (on parole) seven months ago, and had been living the life of a regular civilian.

On the day of Nipsey's death, Kerry walked into Nipsey's Marathon store to buy a shirt. When he went outside, that's when Eric Holder started firing shots indiscriminately.

According to TMZ, Hussle — an admitted member of the Rollin 60’s Crips — was helping Lathan get some new clothes on the day he was killed following the ex-con’s release from prison. The two of them were at the rapper’s Marathon Clothing store when the shooting occurred.

Eric reportedly shot both Kerry and Nipsey. Kerry survived the gunfire attack. Unfortunately Nipsey did not. Lathan was shot in the back.

As a result of being shot, Kerry says he is now in a wheelchair and may never walk again. After being treated for his injury at a hospital, the 56-year-old man was brought into custody. He's currently being held at a jail in downtown Los Angeles,
