According to the New York Post, 12 jurors comprising nine women and three men found Holder guilty of two counts of attempted voluntary manslaughter.

Shermi Cervinta Villanueva and Kerry Lathan were wounded after the shooting incident as they stood with the rapper.

The jury's decision brings to a close the legal drama that has lasted over three years, as a trial was often delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic.

John McKinney, the Deputy District Attorney, said he hoped fans, family and friends of Hussle will find some closure and peace.

“Today was more than just about the right verdict, or the right outcome for this trial. Today was really about Nipsey Hussle and the legacy that he leaves behind. This verdict and the story of his life will be talked about for sure,” he said.
