Late American rapper Tupac Shakur was only 25 years old at the time of his death. At approximately 11:15 p.m. on September 7, 1996, he received several fatal gunshots in a drive-by shooting that ended up taking his life. This tragic incident occurred in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The murder weapon was a .40-calibre Glock. Tupac was on the receiving end of four rounds. Two bullets penetrated his chest, while one went into his arm. Furthermore, another bullet penetrated his thigh. He immediately received medical attention. Unfortunately, it was too late. Tupac passed away six days after this tragedy on September 13, 1996.
27 years after the murder of the rapper, officials finally arrested a man named Duane “Keefe D” Davis in connection with this case.
