Tupac Shakur's last words revealed in new police report

Las Vegas police officer Chris Carroll was the last person to speak to Tupac “2Pac” Shakur before he passed away in 1996, now detailing in length his last words with the seminal rapper.

​Shakur was fatally shot 18 years ago, with Carroll allegedly revealing the artist’s last words in a piece for Vegas Seven. With Carroll pressing the star for a name of who shot him, Tupac’s words were - allegedly - simply “Fuck you”.

You can read the passage below, via FACT:

“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.”
