Las Vegas police recently searched a home in connection with the investigation into the murder of rapper Tupac Shakur.
The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department searched a home in Henderson, Nevada, less than 20 miles from the Las Vegas Strip where Shakur was killed in a drive-by shooting in 1996.
“LVMPD can confirm a search warrant was served in Henderson, Nevada on July 17, 2023, as part of the ongoing Tupac Shakur homicide investigation,” LVMPD said in a statement. “We will have no further comment at this time.”
On the night of September 7, 1996, Shakur was in Las Vegas to celebrate his business partner Tracy Danielle Robinson‘s birthday and attended the Bruce Seldon vs. Mike Tyson boxing match with Suge Knight at the MGM Grand.
Shakur then headed with Knight to his Death Row nightclub, Club 662, in a black BMW 750iL sedan, part of a larger convoy. While they were stopped at a red light at East Flamingo Road and Koval Lane on the Las Vegas Strip, a white Cadillac pulled up to Shakur’s vehicle and opened fire. Shakur was shot multiple times and died from his injuries six days later.
No one has ever been arrested or charged for the shooting.
