Tupac Shakur’s last words have been revealed by a police officer 18 years after his death.
The hip-hop star reportedly used his last words to swear at a police officer as he lay dying.
Tupac Shakur suffered multiple bullet wounds when he and his Death Row Records boss Marion “Suge” Knight were targeted in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in September 1996.
Now Sergeant Chris Carroll, the officer who pulled the rapper from the wreckage of the car, has opened up about Tupac Shakur’s final moments.
According to VegasSeven.com, Sergeant Chris Carroll, formerly of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police, says he was the first officer to arrive at the scene and after realizing Tupac Shakur was bleeding heavily.
Chris Carroll asked the rapper to identify the gunman.
The former police officer says: “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 … 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 co-operation. And then the words came out: <<F— you>>.”
Tupac Shakur, 25, died six days later at University Medical Center of Southern Nevada. The murder remains unsolved.
