First off, have you seen the documentary about Tupac’s life and death, titled ‘Who Shot Biggie & Tupac?‘ You should!
In the newly released explosive documentary, two former members of Compton, California’s police gang unit revealed the man that killed the American legendary rapper.
According to the detectives, who spoke on a 2 hour programme hosted by journalists Soledad O’Brien and Ice-T, aired on Fox, they had concrete evidence tying Anderson, a member of the Crips at the time of Tupac’s death, to the crime.
The detectives said they had Anderson on their radar, for attempting to shoot someone in a gang initiation when he was 15, and they were investigating him for another murder when Tupac was killed in Las Vegas on Sept. 7, 1996.
As indicated by the two officers, Tupac and his escort had earlier assaulted Anderson in the MGM Grand Las Vegas Hotel and Casino after a Bruce Seldon-Mike Tyson fight. After three hours, they said, Anderson pulled up in a white Cadillac nearby a car conveying Tupac and driven by Suge Knight, and fired a barrage of bullets into the car, hitting Tupac four times.
Brennan and Ladd were told to help in the investigation, but they rejected the offer on claims that Las Vegas police dismissed their theories. The officers said they got various reports that Anderson boasted about the executing after Tupac’s passing.
The detectives maintain that, their suspicions were later affirmed when they came across a weapon in a reserve of more than 3,000 firearms held at the Compton Police Department.
The .40-caliber Glock pistol was a similar firearm that murdered Tupac, as indicated by ballistics tests, and it had been found in the home of a lady whose boyfriend was a known partner of Anderson, who happened to be in Las Vegas the night Shakur was shot.
Years later, Anderson’s closest friend confirmed the theories, but by then, Anderson had been killed in a 1998 shootout.
