Nipsey Hussle‘s funeral procession was marred by violence with one person being shot to death and three others wounded, according to cops.
“We must stop this,” tweeted Los Angeles Police Chief Michel Moore, who reported the drive-by shooting on Twitter.
“Victims are 3 Male Blacks and 1 Female Black – ages from 30-50 years old,” Moore said. “Tragically one is deceased.”
Hussle’s funeral procession had started earlier in the day and was in the area of 103rd and Main streets when the shooting happened “in the midst” of it, Moore said. The LAPD later clarified that the shooting happened three blocks from the procession route.
“Suspects in grey Hyundai fired on the victims,” he tweeted.
Hussle, an admitted gang member-turned-activist who tried to use his fame to help better the LA community, was honoured during a memorial service at the Staples Center before his procession — for which 21,000 people showed up.
