A former Las Vegas cop is coming forward to claim that Tupac Shakur said his final words to him and they weren’t very pleasant. When the cop repeatedly asked the then-25 year old rapper who had shot him, he wouldn’t tell him and instead hurled profanity at him.
Former policeman Chris Carroll told local newspaper Vegas Seven almost 18 years after the rapper was murdered, his last words were “F-ck you.”
The Daily News reports Carroll explained, “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. After that, he started gurgling and slipping out of consciousness. At that point, an ambulance showed up, and he went into unconsciousness.”
Carroll was the first on the scene after the Mike Tyson/ Bruce Seldon fight at the MGM Grand, the night Shakur got shot in 1996. Shakur was in the passenger seat in the BMW that belonged to Death Row Records founder Suge Knight when someone in a Cadillac drove by and shot him.
No one was ever charged for his shooting death, and there have been some conspiracy theories that he’s still alive.
