Grammy nominated rapper and community activist Nipsey Hussle, was shot dead on Sunday outside his clothing shop in Los Angeles.
The 33-year-old whose real name is Ermias Davidson Asghedom, was shot a number of times alongside two others who survived the shooting incident.
“We have no suspect info at this time and will provide more details as they become available,” said the Los Angeles Police Department.
Hundreds of fans took to social media to express their shock and condolence messages.
This doesn’t make any sense! My spirit is shaken by this! Dear God may His spirit Rest In Peace and May You grant divine comfort to all his loved ones! 💔🙏🏿

Nipsey’s death has given rise to conspiracy theories among fans who think that he was targeted for making a documentary on self proclaimed healer, Dr. Sebi, born Alfredo Bowman, who claimed to have found the cure for AIDs but was also killed in August 2016.
Below are sample views in this regard.
Nipsey said out his own mouth, “If they kill me for this documentary y’all better ride”. Stop being blind to the government killing people. They killed DR SEBI, MLK & A LOT MORE… pic.twitter.com/mX6WxHlQ3m

Dr Sebi cures cancer, gets trailed and dies from a mysterious cause of death… Nipsey decides to make a documentary about Dr. Sebi’s Trial and gets shot… if the killer isn’t found this will be too much of a coincidence.🤔

ODB starts exposing CIA/govt mind control experiments. He “ODs”.
Pimp C starts exposing how gay the industry is. He “ODs”.
Prodigy starts exposing rampant pedophilia in the industry. He “accidentally chokes.”
Nipsey starts doing a Dr. Sebi documentary. Hes gunned down.

I really did not know him but I heard his interviews especially on Dr Sebi and how woke he was. This just hurts. May the Lord comfort his family and please may we stop this senseless killings. I think some forces were trying to silence him.
