Police used surveillance video and social media posts by witnesses to help identify a suspect in the shocking death of Nipsey Hussle, the Grammy-nominated rapper, activist and entrepreneur gunned down in front of his Los Angeles clothing store on Sunday afternoon.

Police named 29-year-old Eric Holder as a suspect in the shooting late Monday night and asked for the public’s help in locating him.

The Los Angeles Police Department did not say if Holder had any known ties to Hussle, but law enforcement sources previously told ABC News the shooting appeared to have been targeted and personal based on how it was carried out.

Witnesses and people in the area have been posting names and pictures on social media, which helped LAPD investigators narrow the list of possible suspects, sources with knowledge of the investigation told ABC News on Monday.

The 33-year-old rapper was rushed to a local hospital, where he later died. A second gunshot victim was taken to hospital and was listed in stable condition, and a third man was wounded but refused medical attention, police said.
