Police Search Vegas Home In Tupac Shakur Killing Investigation

July 20, 2023 | By Kali Girl

Las Vegas Metro police have conducted a search at a Las Vegas suburban home in relation to the unresolved murder of Tupac Shakur, as reported by the LA Times.

“LVMPD can confirm a search warrant was served in Henderson, Nevada, on July 17, 2023, as part of an ongoing investigation,” the Las Vegas Metro Police Department said in a statement released Tuesday. “We will have no further comment at this time.”

This marks the first public acknowledgment in years of an active investigation into the shooting incident that occurred on September 7, 1996. Nevada doesn’t impose a statute of limitations for prosecuting homicide cases.

Tupac Shakur, the legendary hip-hop artist, was fatally shot while riding in a BMW driven by Marion “Suge” Knight, who was the owner of Shakur’s record label at the time.

The incident took place as they were leading a convoy of luxurious vehicles near the MGM Grand Hotel and Caesars Palace on their way to a new nightclub. Shakur, only 25 years old, succumbed to his injuries six days later, while Knight suffered a graze wound.

Despite extensive investigations by both Las Vegas and Los Angeles police, as well as federal agencies, and numerous theories surrounding potential conflicts, no one has ever been arrested for Shakur’s murder.

Las Vegas authorities previously investigated the slaying and its potential connection to Orlando Anderson, a reputed gang member. The incident unfolded when Anderson, a 21-year-old affiliated with the Southside Crips, engaged in a physical altercation with Knight, Shakur, and their bodyguards on that fateful night. Shakur and Knight were aligned with the rival Compton gang known as the Mob Piru.

Anderson met his demise in May 1998 during a drug-related exchange of gunfire at a Compton car wash. The case remains open and unresolved.

Shakur’s star recently graced the Hollywood Walk of Fame, and he gained entry into the esteemed Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2017, right in his first year of eligibility.
