One of the most iconic rappers in hip-hop history died at the young age of 25. Tupac was shot multiple times on Sept. 7, 1996, in a drive-by shooting after stopping at a red light near the Vegas strip.
According to The Post, the shooter was a male driving in a white Cadillac. On the fatal night, the Cadillac pulled up beside 2Pac’s BMW and opened fire. Head of Death Row Records, Suge Knight, was in the car with the “Hail Mary” rapper and was slightly injured.
At the time, Tupac left a Mike Tyson fight and was on his way to a club before he was killed. Police back then also say that night at some point, Tupac and his crew were involved in a fight at a hotel before the shooting. He died a week later in a Las Vegas hospital.
No arrests have ever been made. The Washington Post points out that Nevada doesn’t have any statute of limitations for prosecuting a homicide case. Hopefully an arrest will be made, we'll keep you updated.
