TMZ have reported that the shooting was gang related. Nipsey had been a longtime affiliate of L.A. street gang the Rollin 60s Neighborhood Crips, something he publicly acknowledged on record. According to TMZ, police are still searching for the shooter who allegedly approached Hussle and his crew on foot and fired multiple rounds, then fled the scene in a nearby car. Sources tell TMZ that police are investigating the shooting as gang-related. Hussle is survived by a son with his longtime girlfriend, actress Lauren London, and a daughter from a previous relationship.

Mark Ridley-Thomas, a member of the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors who represents the southern part of the city, released a statement Sunday night saying his district mourned the loss of Hussle.

“Ermias Asghedom, known to us as the hip-hop artist Nipsey Hussle, was a father, businessman, entertainer, and inspiration to many,” Ridley-Thomas said, urging his district to stay calm and reflect on the tragedy. “Our communities have lost too many young men and bright futures to the scourge of gun violence. For healing to occur, even from this terrible incident, justice must be sought through legal means, and community peace must be found.”
