Hussle, a Grammy-nominated artist and entrepreneur, was shot and killed outside his store, Marathon Clothing, on Sunday afternoon in South LA.
Police identified Eric Holder, a 29-year-old from Los Angeles, as the murder suspect. On Tuesday afternoon, Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputies detained a man matching Holder's description in Bellflower, officials said.
