At one point, Holder returned with a handgun and “purposely and repeatedly fired” at the men, injuring two of them and killing the rapper, he said. Rapper was more movement than musician Though the rapper was a member of an arm of the Crips street gang and police believe Holder belongs to a gang as well, Moore declined to specify any gang affiliation and said the dispute between the two does not appear gang-related.
