Surveillance cameras from a nearby business captured a man in a dark shirt approaching Hussle and the other men as they stood by a white vehicle parked at the front of his store. He was just 33 years old.

Chief Moore also tweeted Sunday, saying the murder was the latest incident "in a troubling surge in violence" this past week in South L.A. Two other men are listed in critical condition.

News of Hussle's death prompted an outpouring of grief and tributes from fellow celebrities and LA city officials on social media. According to a Los Angeles Times report, law enforcement has identified a suspect who they believe got into a dispute with the rapper before he was killed.

Rihanna also tweeted: "This doesn't make any sense!".

And 21 Savage added: "Real one after real one shaking my head, R.I.P Nipsey the solid morals you stood on and your legacy will last for life".

His Facebook page says Hussle was "a devout member of the Rolling Sixty Crips", a national street gang that was founded in Los Angeles in the mid-1970s.

Nipsey Hussle is survived by his two children: daughter Emani from a previous relationship and son Kross, 2, with his girlfriend, actress Lauren London, 34. Since news arrived of his tragic passing, his peers and supports have poured out tributes to mourn and celebrate the emcee, who earned a GRAMMY nomination this year for his Victory Lap opus. Dear God may His spirit Rest In Peace and May You grant divine comfort to all his loved one.
