USA rapper Nipsey Hussle shot dead outside LA store

The injuries appear to have resulted from an apparent stampede at a candlelight vigil for rapper Nipsey Hussle, who was shot dead on Sunday in Los Angeles.

Hundreds of fans and neighbors gathered outside Hussle's store last night, chanting the rapper's name. A memorial of candles, flowers and paintings took shape, and some of Hussle's songs blared through speakers.

The performer and producer Pharrell Williams wrote on Twitter that Hussle was a "positive" force who "inspired millions".

Los Angeles Police Department Commissioner Steve Soboroff said that he was scheduled to meet with Nipsey Hussle, Police chief Michel Moore and Jay-Z's company Roc Nation to discuss ways to end gang violence. "He's rare. A lot of people like him don't come around often". An autopsy was performed on Monday, which determined that he died of gunshot wounds to the head and torso. They have not located the suspect, however.

The rapper one of three victims in the attack, with two others surviving while in serious condition. "He loved us", film director Ava Duvernay tweeted. My heart broke today when I saw the news. And it can not die.

Hussle, an Eritrean-American, was born in the southern Los Angeles neighborhood of Crenshaw in 1985. Rest in Power, King.

Lt. Chris Ramirez said that authorities remain seeking witnesses or video of the incident, and have yet to identify suspects in the slayings, or potential motives.

"We dealt with death, with murder", he told The Times in 2018.

"It was like living in a war zone, where people die on these blocks and everybody is a little bit immune to it", he said. By 2013, his mixtapes were so sought after that he was able to release his limited-edition "Crenshaw" at $100 per hard copy.

Hussle's album Victory Lap was nominated for best rap album at this year's Grammy Awards losing out to Cardi B's Invasion of Privacy.

"So so SAD man!"

LA mayor Eric Garcetti tweeted: "Our hearts are with the loved ones of Nipsey Hussle and everyone touched by this very bad tragedy".
