Moore told reporters Tuesday that 29-year-old suspect Eric Holder and Hussle knew each other, but Moore did not disclose any details about the nature of the dispute or how the two men knew each other.

Hussle was shot Sunday afternoon outside his South Los Angeles clothing store.

Moore says the suspect repeatedly came up to Hussle and spoke with him, then returned with a gun and opened fire before fleeing in a car driven by an unidentified woman.

Police have named 29-year-old Eric Holder as a suspect in the fatal shooting of Hussle outside his South Los Angeles clothing store on Sunday.

The mayor told reporters Tuesday that an increase in gun violence over the past week alone has killed 11 people and he intends to use city resources to roll back that rise.

Garcetti also called Hussle a gifted and brilliant artist who had a deep impact on the city.

Los Angeles police Chief Michel Moore has scheduled a briefing Tuesday morning in which he will discuss how detectives came to identify Eric Holder as the man suspected of killing Hussle Sunday afternoon and wounding two others. Holder is suspected of fleeing in a 2016 Chevy Cruze with the license plate 7RJD742.

Moore also plans to discuss a wider upsurge of violent crime in the city. The press conference was scheduled before Holder was identified as a suspect. It will be held hours after a disturbance at a memorial for Hussle Monday night left at least 19 people injured, including two people taken to local hospitals in critical condition.

Dozens of police officers cleared the memorial site after a fight apparently broke out and a stampede ensued.
