ON SEPTEMBER 7TH, 1996 AFTER
THE TYSON-SELDON FIGHT IN LAS VEGAS, TUPAC MET HIS END...
Tupac with Suge after the Seldon / Tyson fight,
moments before the shooting.
one of the last photos of Tupac ever taken
Shakur was shot 4
times in the chest by an unknown person driving a white Cadillac. This car
then sped off into the night, leaving Tupac bleeding to death, yet Suge
Knight was barely grazed. Tupac was rushed to University Medical Center
and underwent surgery, including the removal of his right lung. The next
few days in hospital were critical for Tupac, at one point his body was
convulsing so badly that doctors had to induce paralysis, for fear that he
could cause internal damage to himself. Tupac was eventually pronounced
dead on Friday, 13th September, at 4:03pm.
The details about the
actual shooting, and the build up to the shooting are sketchy, and vary
from story to story. Apparently, on the night of the Seldon / Tyson fight,
Tupac was scheduled to visit family in Atlanta, but was persuaded to
attend the fight by Suge Knight. This claim caused many people to
implicate Suge as a suspect for "setting up" Tupac's murder.
However Orlando Anderson, a compton resident who was allegedly a crip, was
held on suspicion of Tupac's murder, following a series of run ins with
the Death Row entourage, including one on the fateful night. It was
alleged that Anderson's "crew" came into some money suddenly,
following Tupac's death, arousing suspicions that the money was a payoff
for shooting Tuapc. Anderson, who denied the shooting, and claimed that he
was a scapegoat, dies in 1998, following a dispute at an LA car wash
A photo of the crime scene shortly after the shooting
the whole world mourned his loss, some people actually thought about his
death and drew up conspiracies that he could be alive due to the sketchy
details of his shooting....
note that out of respect for Tupac and in order to retain his dignity, I
will NOT post an autopsy photo
