Two women told the Los Angeles District Attorney's Office that a male neighbor told them that Holder came to his door to complain about a $ 10 bag of grass he had bought for him.
As TMZ explains:
They went to the hall to talk, and according to the statements … Holder was "breathing heavily and seemed very excited and very agitated". When Holder became more hostile, the neighbor tried to return to his apartment, but supposedly it was a gun. Whip in the nape.
The neighbor survived the alleged beating, but told the women that Holder was "shaking and looked very nervous" before taking off.
A few days later, the women told the DA that their neighbor learned that Holder was suspected of Hussle's death, but by then he was too scared to go to the police, since he had sold grass to Holder, TMZ reports.
Holder is accused of shooting Hussle in front of his Marathon clothing store an hour after his neighbor's encounter on the afternoon of March 31.
Holder, who faces murder charges and is being held without bail, is seeking a new lawyer. Chris Darden, the prosecutor in the infamous O.J. The Simpson murder trial initially took Holder's case, but stepped aside earlier this month, citing death threats.
