So, Tupac Shakur's Final Words Were A Big "F*CK YOU" To Cops
Tupac Shakur's words were...well....F*CK YOU.
Finally, fans of Tupac Shakur breathe a sigh of relief. No, we still don't know the identity of his killer - and we probably never will - but at least we know the rapper's last words. Shakur died on September 13, 1996, six days after being shot four times following a Mike Tyson boxing match in Las Vegas.
Tupac Shakur's Final Words Have Been Revealed
Now, former Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Officer Chris Carroll who worked the case and who was at the scene when Tupac was shot, has revealed his final words.
"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--- you,'" Carroll told Vegas Seven, a weekly newspaper in Sin City. "After that, he started gurgling and slipping out of consciousness. At that point, an ambulance showed up, and he went into unconsciousness."
Shakur never regained consciousness and his killer was never caught. The rapper wad riding shotgun in the BMW of Death Row Records founder Suge Knight at the time of the shooting. After stopping at the intersection of Flamingo and Koval, several men rolled up beside his vehicle in a white Cadillac and opened fire. Many have alleged that Shakur's killer was Orlando Anderson, a man who was beaten by the rapper's entourage in the MGM casino shortly after the boxing match, but Anderson was shot dead in an unrelated shooting in Compton in 1998.
"... I didn't want Tupac to be a martyr or hero because he told the cops 'F--- you.' I didn't want to give him that," Carroll told the publication. "I didn't want people to say, 'Even when the chips were down, his life on the line, he still said 'F--- you,' he still wouldn't talk to the police.' I didn't want him to be a hero for that. And now enough time has passed, well, he's a martyr anyway; he's viewed as a hero anyway. My story, at this point, isn't going to change any of that."
