September 07, 1996, Las Vegas

At 11.15pm on September 7 1996, the black BMW in which American rapper Tupac Shakur was travelling with Suge Knight, founder of Death Row records, stopped at a red light in the centre of Las Vegas.

As they waited for the lights to change, a white Cadillac pulled up alongside, from which 14 shots were fired. Tupac was hit six times, with one bullet puncturing his lung.

He died six days later (September 13. 1996), at the age of 25, from injuries sustained in the attack.
