New Research Reveals That Police Had Tupac Murder Weapon At One Point

New Research Reveals That Police Had Tupac Murder Weapon At One Point

Almost two decades ago, the handgun used to shoot Tupac Shakur to his death was found in a backyard in Compton, CA.

According to the A&E documentary series Who Killed Tupac? According to TMZ, the location of the handgun used to fatally shoot the hip-hop icon is now not known by law enforcement. The weapon was reported to local police and Compton PD records show that it was booked as found property in May of that year.

In 2000, L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. took over law enforcement of Compton, and 3,800 confiscated firearms - including that Glock - were transferred to the LASD. Deputy T. Brennan was the one who discovered that this was the weapon connected to Tupac's murder. Since he knew that the Crip member had issues with Tupac, Brennan chose to run ballistics on the gun.

The late Tupac Shakur was killed over 20 years ago, and there has been little to no progress made in finding his killer.

A new bombshell document is heating up the cold-case investigation of Tupac Shakur's murder. Suge Knight, who was with Tupac at the time of his shooting, has claimed that his ex-wife Sharitha Golden and a former Death Row security chief killed Tupac Shakur, and that he was in fact the real target of the 1996 murder.

The Glock found in Compton was put through a ballistics test, and it matched the gun that killed Shakur, according to TMZ.

So, while the gun was never turned over to the Las Vegas Police Department, the question remains: what happened to the Glock? However, instead of sending the gun to Las Vegas where the murder is unsolved, a federal prosecutor said there were concerns that the discovery that a Crip was tied to Tupac's murder might cause more gang violence, so the gun was kept in Los Angeles.

The document was recently unveiled by Benjamin Crump, a civil rights attorney and producer of Who Killed Tupac?

A&E says it contacted LVPD, and some officers said the gun definitely never got to them, while others said they were unsure.
