2:50 PM PT -- Nip's legal team just called a witness, a man who goes by the name Cowboy. Cowboy testified he heard the verbal exchange between Holder and Nipsey just minutes before the shooting. He says Nip told Holder, "You know there’s some paperwork floating around. I haven’t read it, but you need to take care of it.” Which usually means police documents.
Cowboy says Nipsey was never confrontational, and never called Holder a snitch -- as had previously been reported -- but Holder responded by saying, "You be hating on me."
Nipsey Hussle's alleged murderer, Eric Holder Jr., is standing trial in Los Angeles and prosecutors just laid out the details of Nip's shooting death in court ... and it's horrifying.
Deputy District Attorney John McKinney told the jury Wednesday ... after Holder gunned down Nipsey in a Crenshaw parking lot, Holder walked over to Nispey's bullet-riddled body and kicked him in the head.
The prosecutor also told the courtroom, Holder said to Nipsey, "You're through" ... with Hussle replying, "You got me," before Holder took off from the scene.
McKinney told the jury, Holder's kick to Nipsey's head shows it was a personal attack ... while Holder's public defender is trying to frame the case as something that happened in the heat of the moment.
You'll recall ... Holder was arrested a few days after Nipsey's shooting death, and he's charged with 1 count of murder, 2 counts of attempted murder (two other people were injured by gunshots during the incident) and 1 count of possession of a firearm by a felon.
Nipsey's death in March 2019 sent shockwaves through the city ... and Holder's been held in solitary confinement over fears he'll be killed by other inmates.
