On October 31, 1993, Tupac was charged in the shooting of two off-duty police officers in Atlanta.
Witnesses testified that Tupac and his associates shot back at the plainclothes officers after they opened fire on Tupac’s car. The charges were eventually dropped when it was learned that the cops, who’d been drinking, had initiated the shooting.
The prosecution’s own witness testified that the gun used by an officer to threaten Tupac had earlier been seized in a drug bust and was missing from a police evidence locker. It was damning evidence against the cops, enough to exonerate Tupac. / The Killing of Tupac Shakur
