HENDERSON, Nev. (Scripps News Las Vegas) — The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department is actively continuing its investigation into the death of Tupac Shakur.
The department confirmed they searched a home in Henderson on Monday as part of the ongoing homicide investigation. However, officials said they have no further comment at this time.
The rapper was gunned down in Las Vegas on Sept. 7, 1996.
Investigators said Shakur got into a fistfight with a man named Orlando Anderson. Police said they believe Anderson got a gun and ran up to a BMW that Shakur was in. The vehicle was stopped at a red light at Flamingo Road and Koval Lane. That’s when shots rang out. Anderson was killed in an unrelated shooting in Los Angeles not long after Shakur.
However, there have been many unanswered questions over the years as police have continued to investigate the case. No arrests have ever been made.
Last month, the rapper received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2017, he was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall Of Fame.
