Internal Affairs Inquiry Launched In Nipsey Hussle Case
The Los Angels police have opened up an internal affairs investigation in the Nipsey Hussle’s case as to why the woman who drove the getaway car in the aftermath of the shooting was sent home when she tried to turn herself in.
The LAPD’s Office of the Inspector General has confirmed on Monday that the desk officer’s response at the 77th street station is being investigated. Capt. Gisselle Espinoza, an LAPD spokeswoman, said that the investigation is still on-going and no further details were available.
The woman, who was driving suspect Eric. R Holder, went to the station when she heard and saw her license plate were on the news.
The woman, whose name has not yet been released, testified that she told her mother, “Oh my God. My car is on here and everything, and I didn't do anything. I didn't know this boy was gonna do this.”
Her mother called the police but was told that detectives would not be available until the following day at 6AM according to grand jury transcripts.
When the woman and her mother arrived at the station the following morning, the front desk officer said, “don't worry about it" and "don't listen to the news," the transcript shows. The woman left the station, returning later to speak to detectives after her mother called police again.
