Monday night saying he was wanted over the fatal shooting.
On Monday night, chaos broke out outside Marathon Clothing, the store which he owned and where he was killed, as hundreds of people who had gathered to pay their respects started running from the scene without explanation.
The stampede injured 19 people but it remains unclear what sparked the panic.
The crowds left balloons, candles and cards for the rapper in the exact spot where he was shot multiple times at close range on Sunday.
Police are also hunting a female getaway driver who is said to have sped off with Holder after he allegedly fired the fatal shots.
Two other men who were with Hussle were also shot but they survived with injuries.

Suddenly, the crowds which had gathered to pay respect to Hussle started running from the scene after unconfirmed reports of ‘shots fired’
Among those who have paid tribute to him are Rihanna, Drake and Shaquille O’Neal.
The LAPD commissioner said he was ‘very sad’ about the news when it emerged on Monday.
Surveillance video captured the moment the rapper was killed. The video captured a man, now allegedly believed to be Holder, approaching Hussle and a group of men as they stood by a white car parked at the front of his store.
Seconds later, Hussle could be seen dropping to the ground while multiple men fled the scene as the gunfire rang out.
The gunman could be seen firing from a distance before approaching and shooting multiple times at close range.
He then appeared to kick Hussle before fleeing the same way he came.
Police said Holder fled the scene in a white, four-door 2016 Chevy Cruze, with the license plate number 7RJD742. The car was being driven by the unidentified female.
Authorities are asking for the public’s help in finding Holder but no additional details about him were released.
Sources told the Los Angeles Times that Holder had gotten into a dispute with the rapper in the lead up to the shooting.
Prior to Holder’s name being released, sources said detectives believed the gunman was someone the Hussle knew and that he had gang ties. The sources added that shooting was likely personal and not part of a larger gang feud.
Hussle, whose real name was Ermias Asghedom, was shot multiple times and was pronounced dead after being rushed to hospital.
He suffered gunshot wounds to his head and torso, according to the L.A. County Medical Coroner.
The two other men who were injured in the shooting remain in stable conditions.
