Eric Holder, 29, had been on the run after fleeing the scene of the shooting in a waiting car, Los Angeles Police Department said.

Investigators believe the shooting was the result of a "personal matter" between Mr. Holder and Hussle. Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore told reporters the suspect had a verbal altercation with the rapper.

Mr. Moore said at one point the suspect left but them came back with a gun and opened fire.
