The last words of rapper Tupac Shakur were “F–k you,” according to the cop on the scene of the 1996 Las Vegas drive-by shooting.
Chris Carroll, a veteran police officer, shared details of Shakur’s final moments with website Vegas Seven.
Carroll recalled that Shakur was shot after a Mike Tyson fight at the MGM Grand.
Shakur and producer Suge Knight were in a violent altercation at the MGM before the drive-by incident that claimed Shakur’s life.
Carroll was the cop who pulled the rap star from Knight’s car.
He said, “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 … He looked at me and he took a breath to get the words out … I thought I was actually going to get some cooperation. And then the words came out, ‘F–k you.’”
Carroll added, “After that, he started gurgling and slipping out of consciousness.”
