33-year old Nipsey Hussle was gunned down yesterday in front of his store in Los Angeles. The Grammy-nominated rapper was supposed to meet with LAPD and the city’s police chief today to discuss anti-gang violence according to ABC.
” We’re talking about programs to help underserved kids, to keep kids out of gangs. And this was his idea. We’ve been working on this meeting for three months. How I wish it would have been on Saturday,” Los Angeles Police Commission told ABC.
Representative of Roc Nation will meet with the LAPD as scheduled.
” 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,” said Mark Ridley-Thomas, the LA County Board of Supervisor.
LAPD are looking for a black male in his 20s who approached Nipsey on foot and fired several shots and fled in a getaway car.
