Someone vandalized Nipsey Hussle's Marathon clothing store in a strip mall the rapper previously owned in the Hyde Park neighborhood of Los Angeles.

A Twitter user uploaded video of the destruction with a caption threatening the lives of whoever did the damage:

"A niggh bet not find out who did this shit... bitch ass nigghs something awful gone happen to Yu!! Long Live The Great @NipseyHussle shit fucced up cuz, love u bro [sic]."

The same user uploaded a second video that shows a group of volunteers sweeping up the shattered glass outside the store.

Vandals also hit the T-Mobile store next-door to Marathon Clothing, and other stores were hit as well.

Nipsey, real name Ermias Joseph Asghedom, was shot and killed near the doorway to his store in 2019. He used his rap revenue to open the shop in his childhood neighborhood of Crenshaw in 2017.

There is still no word on why the vandals hit the most famous strip mall in South Central.

A disgraced former NYPD police officer who forced his way into a Black woman's apartment was ordered to pay her $1 million.

Michael Reynolds, who is white, was in a drunken stupor the night he forced his way into Conese Haliburton's apartment.

Haliburton filed a civil suit against Reynolds who quit the police force in shame earlier this year.

The incident happened on July 9, 2018. Reynolds, 27, had attended a bachelor party for a fellow NYPD officer when he was caught on surveillance video breaking into Haliburton's apartment at 2:30 a.m.

The footage captured him calling Haliburton and her family "f***ing ni__ers," according to MSNBC.

"I'll break every bone in your neck!" he yelled, before running back to his Airbnb rental.

Reynolds later confessed that he confused Haliburton's address with the Airbnb rental that he and his friends were staying at next door.

Haliburton said Reynolds and his friends were laughing and claiming they had "immunity" because of their jobs, according to reports.

Reynolds was sentenced to just 15 days in jail after pleading guilty to assault and trespassing charges in January.

He quit his job in disgrace earlier this year. "I'm absolutely sorry I said that word. I'm very remorseful. It's cost me my job, my life, everything," he said in court at the time.

Acting Deputy Commissioner for Public Information Devora Kaye told News 4 Reynolds will not "receive pension or health benefits, nor will he be allowed to carry a firearm."

"His actions are wholly inconsistent with the values and standards the New York City Police Department expects and demands of its officers."

Rapper T.I. is like any other man who wants safety and security for his family. The rapper probably had peace of mind when he moved into the exclusive, gated Eagles Landing subdivision in Henry County, Georgia.

But despite 24/7 guard presence and a gate, a robbing crew is breaking into homes in the upscale neighborhood. And now families are concerned about their safety among million-dollar homes.

Channel 2's Matt Johnson reports that families of Indian descent are bing targeted.

"These guys are smart," said one Indian man who asked Channel 2 not to show his face on camera. The resident said Indians are being targeted because they typically keep a lot of cash and gold jewelry in their homes.

The victim said thieves broke his back window to gain access to his upscale home while he was gone out Saturday night.

It's the third home burglary in the past two weeks inside Eagles Landing, where comedian Chris Tucker also owns a home.

The victim said he isn't sure the thieves are coming in from the outside.

"How they are getting in the neighborhood, that is a little bit mystery," said the man.

At another house, a mother and daughter returned from karate class to find a back window smashed and the house ransacked. $9,000 in cash and an expensive necklace were stolen.

Another family told Johnson that thieves stole at least $30,000 in jewelry from their home while they were gone.

The homeowner's association held a meeting with residents on Thursday to discuss the home break-ins.

Henry County police are investigating the cases.

Tameka "Tiny" Harris was the victim of a car break-in while she reportedly had drinks with a friend at Bar Amalfi in Atlanta's Midtown neighborhood.

Tameka parked her Lamborghini SUV near the restaurant around 8:45PM and returned to the car at 9:45 pm, only to discover a thief broke into the pricey vehicle and stole over $750,000 in jewelry.

Among the stolen jewelry that was stored inside a blue velour bag on top of the center console were diamond wedding rings (she had more than one), expensive watches and diamond stud earrings, according to WSB-TV.

Friends wondered why the 44-year-old singer kept nearly $1 million worth of jewels in a bag on the console. Haters wondered if the theft is really insurance fraud. But according to a source, the mom-of-7 sat the bag on the console and forgot it when she got out of the car. She always carried the bag inside her purse.

Tameka is reportedly "devastated" over the loss of her jewels - most of which are irreplaceable gifts from her husband, rap mogul Tip "T.I." Harris, 39.
