Emergency crews were treating at least five patients, including a stabbing victim, on Monday night near the scene where hundreds of people had gathered in tribute to slain rapper Nipsey Hussle, law enforcement and fire officials said.
Fire officials initially said they were responding to reports that a shot or shots had been fired near the intersection of West Slauson Avenue and Crenshaw Boulevard in South Los Angeles. But police said reports that shots had been fired didn’t appear to be accurate.
The nature of the other injuries wasn’t immediately known, authorities said.
Hussle, whose debut studio album, “Victory Lap,” was nominated for Best Rap Album at this year’s Grammy Awards, was shot and killed Sunday in the parking lot outside his Marathon Clothing store. A suspect remained at large Monday night.
