The woman who reportedly drove the car in which Nipsey Hussle's alleged murderer, Eric Holder, fled away after fatally shooting the rapper might be going under witness protection.
Following Nipsey’s shooting, surveillance video emerged online of Holder running into an alleyway and fleeing in a waiting car with an unidentified woman at the wheel. The Los Angeles Police Department are reportedly offering to bring the unidentified woman under their custody, with the possibility of moving her into hiding.
The woman, who was marked down as "Witness 1" in court documents obtained by TMZ, has been working with the LAPD as a key witness. It was not reported as to whether she accepted the offer for protective custody.
In April, the woman told TMZ that she had no idea about the shooting and was not even aware it had happened at the time. Meanwhile, Holder pleaded not guilty to all the charges. However, he was reportedly indicted by a grand jury in May.
Investigators made the call after they unearthed credible threats that had been made toward the woman after her personal information was shared across social media. The detectives presented evidence before the jury that her license plate number, car details and descriptions of her physical appearance has been widely spread across the internet.
During her testimony, the woman also expressed concerns that a hit might be put out on her in retaliation.
So far, it does not look like any charges will be brought against her as she is reportedly cooperating with the police under an immunity agreement.
