On Friday, September 13, 1996 the successful rapper and actor Tupac Shakur died at a Las Vegas hospital. Tupac died of gunshot wounds. He was shot on the night of Saturday, September 7 after watching a boxing main event match between Mike Tyson and Bruce Seldon. After the fight, he went 4 miles north to his friend and Death Row Records producer Marion "Suge" Knight's house. When he arrived, the two headed to a nightclub in a black BMW. The nightclub they were going to was to be the place where they were to celebrate the Tyson fight win with fellow rapper Run DMC. But they never made it to the nightclub, when a white 1996 Cadillac pulled up to their car and fired 14 bullets into their BMW. Tupac was hit 4 times - twice in the chest, once in the shoulder, and once in the right thigh. Suge Knight was 'grazed' once on the head. Suge still had some power left in him, so he swerved the car around, made a perfect U turn, and fled. One minute later they were pulled over by cops. The cops opened the door and saw what had happened. They immediately radioed for an ambulance. When they arrived at the hospital, Tupac was in critical condition and Suge was released from the hospital the next day. Later Tupac had to go into surgery and have a lung transplant. He remained in critical condition for a few days until Friday when he died. Police are still looking for suspects of the shooting. A lot of people think it may have been Christopher Wallace (The Notorious BIG) who fired at the BMW, because of his past feuds with Tupac. Tupac and Biggie always argued about which coast is better, East or West, and Tupac also claims to have slept with Biggie's wife. So there's no love lost between them. Some also think it may have been Sean Puffy Combs, since Puffy and Suge Knight have their differences. Puffy's East coast rap label Bad Boy Entertainment always got into fights with Knight's West coast label Death Row Records. Others think it was just a gang related drive-by shooting.
