Fans of late rapper Nipsey Hussle gathered outside his Los Angeles store Monday following his tragic and senseless death.

HipHollywood was on the scene as droves of community residents, fans, family and friends paid their respects to the late rapper who was shot and killed Sunday afternoon outside his Crenshaw store, The Marathon.

“He was not just a talented Grammy nominated musician, he’s someone that came back to the Crenshaw community and put his money into investing in our community and that’s why it’s painful,” said NAACP L.A. Chapter President, Najee Ali.

As previously reported police are actively pursuing leads and believe that the suspect was someone Hussle, real name Ermias Asghedom may known.

City Council candidate Denis Francis Woods says public safety is a major concern for the residents and hope police finally make it a priority.

“I don’t care how much how much economics you put into an area and how much beautification you put into an area if people are not safe it does not matter,” she explained.

Nipsey, 33, was also passionate about reducing the gang violence that was haunting the neighborhood and had plans to meet with LAPD Police Chief and Commissioner today to discuss prevention measures.

We’re told the meeting will still take place, instead with reps from his management team at Roc Nation. In the meantime residents are also gathering for a prayer vigil led by local pastors and community leaders.
