Tupac Shakur was killed, and it's not like no one saw it happen. When he was killed in a drive-by shooting,
, not only was he sitting next to his friend and Death Row Records boss Suge Knight, but it also happened outside a busy nightclub in Las Vegas.
Tupac was killed by four bullets to the chest, arm, and thigh at 11:15 p.m. on September 7, 1996, outside the popular Club 662 in Las Vegas. This happened 26 years ago today,
so there were a lot of people there to watch. Before the shots were fired, they saw the white Cadillac pull up to the right of Suge's black BMW.
Still, no one has ever been held accountable. The Death Row crew put up a wall of silence right away and refused to say who had shot them.
Suge was shot in the head and spent the night in the hospital, but he told the police that he "heard something but didn't see anything."
He would say later, "That's not my job. I'm not paid to figure out who killed someone. I'm not paid to say bad things about people. "
Tupac wouldn't say who killed him at the scene of the crime. Instead, he whispered "f*** you" to a police officer who was there to investigate
These were likely his last words before he died on September 13, 1996.
