Police Have Suspect, No Witnesses In Tupac
Dec. 20, 1996 -- Las Vegas police have told MTV News that
they believe they know who murdered Tupac Shakur in a
drive-by shooting on September 7, but that they still do not
have a prosecutable case to present due to a nearly total
lack of cooperation from witnesses.
A police spokesperson says everyone connected with the
case has been interviewed including Death Row Records chief
Marion "Suge" Knight. Suge was driving Tupac's car
that fateful night, and was grazed in the head himself with a
bullet. Contrary to persistent rumors, police say Knight is
not a suspect.
The Vegas police department says that it considers its
case pretty much complete, and hopes witnesses willing to
testify will come forward, so it can name its suspect.
