The trial for Eric Holder Jr. continued on Monday with testimonies from key witnesses at the scene where Nipsey Hussle was violently executed three years ago. According to Rolling Stone, the first to testify was one of the two men injured when Nipsey Hussle was shot multiple times in a South Central, Los Angeles parking lot. The witness recalled that he likely heard the rapper’s words.
“He shot me. He shot me,” Hussle said as he lay bleeding on the ground outside his Marathon clothing store after the shooter fled the scene, witness Shermi Villanueva, 47, recalled to the courtroom. Villanueva and his uncle, Kerry Lathan, were talking to Hussle while standing between two parked cars moments before the suspect allegedly walked up and started firing.
Villaneuva recalled hearing several shots before seeing Nipsey fall to the ground.

Villanueva also testified that he had never heard the shooter speak before he opened fire. There had been no sense anyone was in danger leading up to the deadly attack, he testified.

“It didn’t sound like he was mad.”
Nicholson said Hussle posed for a photo with her, and a while later, she and Holder drove around the block. Holder started loading bullets into a…
