Rapper/activist Nipsey Hussle was murdered today, shot 6 times in what many are calling an assassination.

The Grammy-nominated rapper Nipsey Hussle was killed in a shooting outside his clothing store in Los Angeles, multiple law enforcement sources said. Two other men were in serious condition, and a suspect remained at large.

No further information was immediately available about the shooting at Marathon Clothing on Slauson Avenue in South Los Angeles. But just a couple of hours before the shooting, Hussle, 33, whose real name was Ermias Ashgedom, had tweeted, "Having strong enemies is a blessing."

Nipsey Hussle was in the process of filiming a documentary about legenedary healer Dr.Sebi. Nipsey and many others believe Dr.Sebi was assassinated for being able to cure aids and cancer.

Some on social media are speculating that Nipsey’s killing is also an assassination.

Here’s a video of EMS trying to revive Nipsey:

According to the New York Times, "All three were shot in the parking lot outside the store, according to Lt. Chris Ramirez of the Los Angeles police. He said that the police were still piecing together what happened and that they do not have a motive for the shooting, which they are investigating as a homicide. The police believe at least one suspect fled from the scene in a car.

Footage from local television stations showed multiple police vehicles blocking off a road near a small shopping complex near the intersection of Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard. Nipsey Hussle was shot outside The Marathon Clothing store, which he opened in 2017, according to multiple news reports."
