The man currently under arrest for the murder of Nipsey Hussle was allegedly nabbed while trying to check himself into a mental health facility.
According to a witness at the scene of Eric Holder’s arrest, the suspect had called a mental health facility and claimed he needed “help.”
Holder was arrested in the parking lot of Telecare Los Angeles Hopes and Opportunities Program in Bellflower, CA. According to their site, the facility “operates under contract with the Los Angeles County Department of Mental Health to provide culturally competent mental health services to adults with serious mental illnesses.”
Sources close to the situation tell The Blast Holder has a history of mental illness, and it was known among his circle of friends that he had allegedly previously sought treatment at a facility.
As we reported, officers reported Tuesday afternoon they had a “187 suspect” held at gunpoint when they cuffed Holder. He was later positively identified by LAPD as the suspect in Nipsey’s death.
