The woman driving Nipsey Hussle's alleged killers off the scene says the shooting was triggered by a conversation about crawl testimony to a large jury.
The woman – reported only in court records as Witness 1 – said she and the culprit, Eric Holder hung out on March 31 when they went to the marathon Clothesstrip Mall to get food. She says they stopped and recognized Nipsey … she says she was excited to see him.
According to the doctors, Holder went to the burger shop to fetch food, and then saw him walk over to Nipsey. Holder spoke to Nipsey and his crew for a few minutes while she waited to take a selfie with him.
Witness 1 claims she saw Nipsey Holder beckoning as if he did not want to speak with him … but not until he accused Holder of being a snitch. She also told the grand jury that Holder had heard that he had asked Nipsey if he had ever caught. She says Holder left the conversation and brought his food out of the restaurant … then they both got into the car.
The woman says Holder then told her to drive around the corner of the mall, and then she saw him pulling a black semi-automatic pistol. He pulled back the slide and told her to walk around the block so he could drive by. She says she refused.
She says Holder got out of the car, put on a red shirt and told her not to move. He walked down the alley, allegedly fired several shots on Nipsey and others and ran back to the car. She says when he got back in the car, Holder had two cannons – the black semi-automatic and a smaller revolver. He put the 9 mm in his bag of food.
According to the documents, Witness 1 said in an immunity agreement … which means that nothing she said could be used against her in future criminal prosecution. She was not charged with the murder.
In addition, Nipsey's business partner Herman Douglas testified for the grand jury – he was at Marathon Clothing the day of the murder and said he and Nipsey had Holder in the car as he drove into the mall. Herman says Nipsey said, "Is that Shitty (Holders street name)?" and Nipsey advised Holder to take care of it.
Herman says Holder denied it and said, "Motherf *** he hates me." He says Nipsey and Holder shook hands and separated without hostility.
