The shooting was reported at about 3:20 p.m. in the 3400 block Slauson Avenue in Hyde Park. Hussle owns a store called Marathon Clothing at 3420 W. Slauson.
The police in Los Angeles said three people were shot in the area, one bad, even though they did not release any official victim information.
Several media reports reported Hussle was the person killed in the shooting.
Hussle may have experienced problems on Sunday. A short time before the depiction was reported, he tweeted: "Having strong enemies is a blessing."
Having strong enemies is a blessing.

Our hearts are with the loved ones of Nipsey Hussle and all affected by this terrible tragedy. L.A. is deeply damaged every time a young life is lost to meaningless weaponry. My emergency response group helps families cope with shock and grief.

Hundreds of fans and local residents came out of the business to provide rappers and share stories of how he helped the local community where he grew up.
Marquesha Lawson sobbed when she reminded Hussle and how he helped the community and was offering to help his daughter's model career.
"I was a childhood woman," Lawson said. "I've known him all my life. He was like family to me."
"He cared about us. We cared about him."
Police said Hussle and the other two victims were outside the shop in the parking lot when the shooting took place. They have not yet determined a motive, but said they are looking for a single male gunman who fled the area.
Investigators talk to witnesses and discover the area of surveillance video.
The 33-year-old rapper, born Ermias Asghedom, grew up in Los Angeles. He was nominated for a Grammy this year for his debut studio album "Victory Lap".
Hussle opened the clothing store in June 2017 at an event that included performances by NBA players Russell Westbrook, DeMarcus Cousins and some notable rappers.
A shot and stabbing was also reported at Hussle's Hyde Park store last year.
Police responded to the store for the shooting report on September 14, 2018, but found no suspects or victims, and witnesses were not cooperative.
