Las Vegas Police Revisit Tupac Shakur Murder

On Monday (7.17,) the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department announced that they served a search warrant in Henderson, Nevada in connection with the as yet unsolved 1996 murder of Tupac Shakur.

“LVMPD can confirm a search warrant was served in Henderson, Nevada on July 17, 2023, as part of the ongoing Tupac Shakur homicide investigation,” read their formal statement. “We will have no further comment at this time.”

Henderson, Nevada is located 15 miles away from where the iconic rapper was killed in a drive-by shooting at a Las Vegas intersection some 27 years ago.

On 7 September 1996, Shakur was riding in the passenger seat of a BMW driven by Marion ‘Suge’ Knight when he was shot four times, subsequent to which he was taken to a local hospital, where he died days later at the age of 25. 

An official briefed on the investigation told ABC News that Monday’s search was conducted around 10pm local time to hunt for computers and articles relating to the rapper and his death, and that the evidence will be presented to a grand jury in Las Vegas. 

In a statement, Las Vegas Police Lt Jason Johansson confirmed to the Las Vegas Review-Journal that detectives were working on the cold case again, saying “It’s a case that’s gone unsolved and hopefully one day we can change that.”

At press time no arrests have been made nor have charges been filed.
