Las Vegas Metro Police Department on Monday confirmed authorities searched a home in connection to part of a nearly three-decade investigation into the death of legendary hip hop artist 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,” Las Vegas police said in a statement to ABC News. “We will have no further comment at this time.”

Shakur’s death has remained a mystery since the iconic rapper was fatally shot in 1996. He was 25 years old at the time of his death.

Shakur was shot in a new black BMW 750 driven by former Death Row Records CEO Marion “Suge” Knight just one block away from the famed Las Vegas strip on September 7, 1996. Both men were leaving a Mike Tyson boxing match at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino when the fatal incident occurred.

Previous reports claim an unknown shooter in the back seat of a white Cadillac rolled down the window and fired at least 13 rounds into the BMW, with three shots hitting Shakur in the chest while shrapnel injured Knight.

Emergency crews transported both men by ambulance to the University Medical Center.

Shakur died six days later in the hospital from injuries after undergoing treatment and operations.

The University Medical Center officials said Shakur died of respiratory failure and cardiopulmonary arrest.


Investigators previously said Shakur had engaged in a fistfight with a man named Orlando Anderson earlier in the night.

Authorities initially believed Anderson had a gun and drove toward the BMW with Shakur and Knight. No charges were filed against Anderson.

Anderson was later killed in an unrelated shooting in Los Angeles.

No arrests have been made to this day.

The latest development in Shakur’s death comes a month after the rapper received a star on the Hollywood Walk Of Fame. The Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame recognized Shakur’s influence in music history and inducted him into the museum in 2017.
