September 7, 1996 Tupac Shakur attended the Bruce Seldon vs. Mike Tyson boxing match with Suge Knight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. After leaving the match, one of Knight's associates spotted Orlando "Baby Lane" Anderson, an alleged Crips gang member from Compton, California, in the MGM Grand lobby. Tupac as well as Knight and his followers, assisted in assaulting Anderson. After the brawl, Tupac went with Knight to Death Row-owned Club 662. Tupac rode in Knight's black BMW 750iL sedan as part of a larger convoy. At 11:15 p.m. a white, four-door, late-model Cadillac pulled up to the sedan's right side, rolled down a window, and rapidly fired gunshots at Tupac. Police and paramedics took Knight and a wounded Shakur to the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada. At the hospital, Shakur was heavily sedated for days, was placed on life-support machines, and was ultimately put under a barbiturate-induced coma after repeatedly trying to get out of the bed.
September 13, 1996 Tupac Amaru Shakur died from internal bleeding; doctors attempted to revive him but could not stop the hemorrhaging. His mother, Afeni, made the decision to tell the doctors to stop. He was pronounced dead at 4:03 P.M. The official causes of death were noted as respiratory failure and cardiopulmonary arrest in connection with multiple gunshot wounds.
