A search warrant has been executed by the Nevada police in connection with the unsolved murder of renowned rapper Tupac Shakur.

The search took place at a residence in Henderson, a suburban area near Las Vegas, where Tupac Shakur was tragically gunned down in September 1996.

As the investigation into his murder continues, the Las Vegas Metropolitan police have chosen not to disclose further specifics regarding the search.

According to an official statement from the Las Vegas police, “LVMPD can confirm a search warrant was served in Henderson, Nevada on July 17, 2023, as part of the ongoing Tupac Shakur homicide investigation.” However, they declined to provide any additional commentary at this stage.

Lieutenant Jason Johansson of the Las Vegas Police, in an interview with the Las Vegas Review Journal, expressed his dedication to revisiting this cold case.

“It’s a case that’s gone unsolved, and hopefully one day we can change that,” he conveyed to the newspaper.

Tupac Shakur, recognized by his stage name 2Pac, made his mark in the music industry with the release of his debut album in 1991.
