Loud noise startles crowd at Nipsey Hussle funeral procession route, police say

A crowd at the Nipsey Hussle funeral procession route panicked, broke down the barrier walls and started stampeding at the corner of Slauson and Crenshaw near The Marathon Clothing Store in South LA.

LAPD HQ tweeted out:

'UPDATE: At this time we believe a loud noise startled the crowd at the intersection of Slauson and Crenshaw. We understand emotions may be running high, but we are asking all attendees to remain calm and continue to peacefully mourn as the Nipsey Hussle procession approaches.'
