Rapper Nipsey Hussle died from gunshot wounds of the head and torso, the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner said Monday.
The rapper’s autopsy was completed Monday and his death was certified a homicide.
Hussle, the 33-year-old rapper, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom, was shot multiple times outside his South Los Angeles apparel store, The Marathon Clothing, around 3:20 p.m. PDT Sunday and pronounced dead at the hospital.
By Monday, hundreds of people had gathered in front of the store to pay their respects. A memorial of candles, flowers and paintings took shape, and some of Hussle’s songs blared through speakers.
As the manhunt for Hussle’s killer continues, on Tuesday morning Police Chief Michel R. Moore “will address the surge in violence in the city of Los Angeles and there will be an update on the murder investigation of Nipsey Hussle,” according to the LAPD’s website.
Meanwhile, a confab Hussle had requested with the Los Angeles Police Commission on how to stop gang violence, previously set for Monday, is being rescheduled in the rapper’s honor, Steve Soboroff, president of the commission, told NBC News and ABC News.
