One of the victims shot in the Nipsey Hussle the murder was stopped … for association with Nipsey – TMZ learned.
Sources with direct knowledge tell TMZ, Kerry LathanA 56-year-old man who was shot in the Nipsey Marathon Clothing store was rushed to hospital last Sunday, treated and released.
Five days after the shooting, Lathan, who is on parole after serving 20 years in prison for murder, he was arrested at his halfway house for association with a known gang member – Nipsey.
One of the usual conditions of parole is not association with known gang members, and the police claim that Nipsey was a member of the 60-year-old Rollin Crips.
Lathan is now at the Central Men's Prison in downtown Los Angeles, where he is waiting for the authorities to try to revoke his parole. Lathan is in a wheelchair – result of the shooting – unable to walk.
It's ironic … like Nipsey was celebrated for his contribution to L.A., the authorities arrested one of the victims of the shooting for his entourage. And here it is … Lathan had just been released from prison and Nipsey went to Marathon to give clothes to the ex-detainee so that he could have fresh air once he'd have found his friends and family.
