Kerry Lathan, Shot During Nipsey’s Murder Is Back In Prison Just For Associating With Rapper
erry Lathan and Shermi Cervabta Villanueva have been identified as the two men who were wounded in the same attack that killed rapper Nipsey Hussle on Sunday afternoon.
(AllHipHop News) One of the victims in the tragic Nipsey Hussle shooting has been arrested, simply for associating with the late rap star. Police have taken Kerry Lathan, 56, into custody, as he recovers from a wound he received when Eric Holder, 29, shot him, Nipsey and another unidentified victim.
Nipsey died from gunshot wounds to the torso and head. He was laid to rest in a spectacular ceremony yesterday (April 11) at The Staples Center in Los Angeles. But Kerry Lathan was forced to mourn from jail, because he was busted for violating his parole, just for associating with Nipsey.
Shermi Cervabta Villanueva and Kerry Lathan were the two men with Nipsey Hussle on the day he was shot and killed in Los Angeles. The YBF reports that Kerry Lathan is now paralyzed after being shot by Eric Holder. Villanueva was also wounded in the incident.
According to reports, Lathan is a convicted murderer and spent 20 years in hail, had just been paroled from prison. His terms of release stated he was barred from associating with known gang members, and Nip was a well-known member of The Rolling ’60s.
It’s unfortunate because according to reports, Kerry Lathan had met Nipsey at The Marathon Clothing store, simply to give him some free clothing since he was just released prison.
