Nipsey Hussle's longtime girlfriend, Lauren London, broke her silence on his shooting death just hours after police arrested Eric Holder, the alleged gunman.
"Eric Holder, the suspected killer of Nipsey Hussle, has been arrested and is in police custody," the Los Angeles Police Department tweeted Tuesday afternoon.
Holder is being held without bail, according to booking records.
Hours later, London took to Instagram to say she's "completely lost" after the rapper was gunned down outside his South Central Los Angeles boutique, the same place where the couple first met in person.
Nipsey Hussle murder investigation: Here is everything we know so far
"I’ve lost my best friend. My sanctuary. My protector. My soul....I’m lost without you," she wrote alongside a series of pictures of the rapper. "We are lost without you babe. I have no words."

The couple started dating in 2013 and have one son together – Kross Asghedom, 2. London is also mother to 9-year-old son, Cameron Carter, with rapper Lil Wayne, while Hussle had a daughter, Emani Asghedom, from a previous relationship.
London shared a picture of their blended family dressed all in white.
Earlier Tuesday, the LAPD identified Holder, 29, as the suspect who fatally shot Hussle Sunday outside of his store, The Marathon Clothing, before fleeing through an alley to a waiting car driven by an unidentified woman.
L.A. Sheriff's Department spokeswoman Nicole Nishida told the Associated Press that a man matching Holder's description was detained Tuesday afternoon in Bellflower, a city about 20 miles southeast of where Hussle was slain.

During a Tuesday morning press conference, Police Chief Michel Moore said the fatal shooting of Hussle was the result of a personal dispute, not gang violence, although authorities believe Holder has gang affiliations.
Two other men were shot during the attack.
"Mr. Holder walked up on multiple occasions, engaged in (conversation) with Nipsey, left and came back. He subsequently came back … armed with a handgun, striking and killing Nipsey Hussle," Moore said.
