Gun Used in Tupac Shakur Murder Has Gone Missing
Even though Tupac Shakur's murder remains unsolved, the weapon reportedly used to kill the late rapper was previously found back in 1998. However, according to TMZ, the location of the handgun used to fatally shoot the hip-hop icon is currently unknown.
Producers of the A&E docu-series, Who Killed Tupac?, discovered the police documents that detail a .40 caliber Glock being discovered in a citizen's backyard nearly 20 years ago. The Compton Police Department booked the weapon as found property on May 30 of that same year. When L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. took over Compton's law enforcement in 2000, the handgun was part of 3,800 confiscated firearms that were transferred to them.
In 2006, Deputy T. Brennan recognized the address where the weapon had been discovered from the documents, which was reportedly the home of the girlfriend of a Crip member who had previous issues with Tupac. That same year, the department ordered testing of the handgun, which came up as a match for the same weapon that was used to tragically kill the rapper in 1996.
Fast forward to today, and law enforcement members are now unaware of the location of the handgun.
A&E premiered Who Killed Tupac? back in November, and is still unveiling facts about the death of the late hip-hop star. Be sure to tune in.
