The news of Eric’s alleged suicide effort came 5 months after his teenager brother took his own life. The 17-year-old brother or sister of the accused killer died of suicide on April 12. The teenager shares a dad with Eric, but is of various mom.
Eric was jailed on April 2, 2 days after he was captured on surveillance camera shooting Nipsey several times in front of his Marathon Clothing store in South Los Angeles. He has been charged with one count of murder, 2 of tried murder, and one of possession of a gun by a felon. Eric has actually pleaded not guilty to all charges. He is dealing with life in prison if found guilty of the crimes.
It was previously revealed that Eric shot Nipsey after they got into a discussion in which the rapper, whose real name is Ermias Joseph Asghedom, implicated the 29-year-old guy of snitching. “Mr. Holder left the cars and truck, instantly walked up to the group where Mr. Hussle, or Mr. Asghedom was, and they had a conversation,” Deputy District Lawyer John McKinney described. “That discussion is important since that conversation had something to do with Mr. Asghedom implicating Mr. Holder of snitching, which in the gang world is a really severe offense.”
