While 2Pac’s murder remains unsolved even 18 years later, a retired police officer has come forward with a truly incredible account of that fateful night in Las Vegas. Chris Carroll, a sergeant on the LVMPD’s bike patrol unit, was the first officer to arrive on the scene, and recalled holding a heavily-bleeding ‘Pac in his arms after being shot.

The highlight of Carroll’s story is when he reveals what he remembers to be the rapper’s last words, and they completely encompass the fiercely authentic character that Tupac Shakur was. If you thought his legend was bad-ass before, just wait until you read this.

So 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 was making eye contact with me here and there, but he’s trying to yell at Suge. And I kept asking over and over, ‘Who did this? Who shot you?’ And he basically kept ignoring me. And then I saw in his face, in his movements, all of a sudden in the snap of a finger, he changed. And he went from struggling to speak, being noncooperative, to an ‘I’m at peace’ type of thing. Just like that.

He went from fighting to ‘I can’t do it.’ And when he made that transition, he looked at me, and he’s looking right in my eyes. And that’s when I looked at him and said one more time, ‘Who shot you?’
“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: ‘Fuck you.’

After that, he started gurgling and slipping out of consciousness. At that point, an ambulance showed up, and he went into unconsciousness.

You can read the full story on Vegas Seven, where Carroll also explains why he thinks ‘Pac’s murder will never be solved, and why he believes Suge Knight didn’t have anything to do with the killing.
