Nipsey Hussle, the 33-year-old rapper who earned a Grammy nomination this year for his major-label debut, was murdered.

Police said Hussle was shot and killed Sunday, and two others were shot and are in stable condition. They were shot outside Marathon Clothing, a store that Hussle owns.

“A large crowd of fans and residents gathered behind police lines as night fell. Detectives were canvassing the area for witnesses and looking to see if any surveillance video captured the incident,” police Lt. Chris Ramirez said.

Hussle, whose real name is Ermias Asghedom, was born on Aug. 15, 1985, in Los Angeles.

He leaves behind a two-year-old son, Kross Asghedom, and his girlfriend of six years, actress Lauren London.
