This September will mark 18 years since one of the greatest rappers that lived, Tupac Shakur, was murdered from being gunned down in Las Vegas, Nevada. Even since then, no one has been caught and fully charged with Tupac’s murdering and we still know little about the total incident.
Recent, Chris Carroll, who’s now a retired cop of the Las Vegas Police Department and was the first cop on the seen, has decided to speak on the incident and talks about Tupac and matters that took place right before his death.
So I’m looking at Tupac, and he’s trying to yell back at Suge, and I’m asking him, ‘Who shot you? What happened? Who did it?’ And he was just kind of ignoring me. He was making eye contact with me here and there, but he’s trying to yell at Suge. And I kept asking over and over, ‘Who did this? Who shot you?’ And he basically kept ignoring me. And then I saw in his face, in his movements, all of a sudden in the snap of a finger, he changed. And he went from struggling to speak, being non-cooperative, to an ‘I’m at peace’ type of thing. Just like that.
He went from fighting to ‘I can’t do it.’ And when he made that transition, he looked at me, and he’s looking right in my eyes. And that’s when I looked at him and said one more time, ‘Who shot you?’
He looked at me and he took a breath to get the words out, and he opened his mouth, and I thought I was actually going to get some cooperation. And then the words came out: ‘F–k you.’
After that, he started gurgling and slipping out of consciousness. At that point, an ambulance showed up, and he went into unconsciousness.
Reasons why Tupac didn’t state anything other that could have been to actually to protect the cop. Personally I think the cop may also know that was the case, because to hold specific information like that for 18 years and want to speak about it now, after he’s left the police department is crazy.
