On Monday evening, police cleared a vigil outside Marathon Clothing in Hyde Park after a fight provoked a stampede. Two people were critically injured, according to the Los Angeles Fire Department, including one person who was hit by a car. The other had a “penetrating, traumatic injury” — an apparent stab wound. A total of 19 people were taken to the hospital, most of whom suffered non life-threatening injuries in the rush to get away from the scene.
Hussle was nominated for a Grammy for best rap album for “Victory Lap,” his 2018 major label debut. He was well known in South L.A. as a supporter of local arts and education initiatives.
