The gun used to kill Tupac Shakur was found 19 years ago was found at the home of the girlfriend of a prominent Crip member Orlando Anderson, one day after Orlando murder, but its current location is a mystery.
This bombshell was unearthed by producers of A&E’s Who Killed Tupac? A .40 caliber Glock was discovered in a citizen’s backyard in 1998, which he reported to police, and it was booked as found property on May 30, 1998. In 2000, over 3,000 confiscated firearms were transferred to the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department, including the Glock.
Deputy Tim Brennan was working the Notorious B.I.G. murder – was sifting through records when he recognized the address where the gun was found, as the home of the girlfriend of a prominent Crip member (Orlando Anderson), who was known to have issues with Tupac. Brennan immediately ordered ballistic testing and the results were a match for the firearm used to kill Tupac.
It sounds like the most bizarre coincidence, but yes … Orlando Anderson – a known member of the Southside Crips – was killed in a gang shootout, in Compton, on May 29, 1998. As TMZ first reported … the .40 caliber Glock used to shoot and kill Tupac was found May 30.
Unfortunately, the weapon was not immediately sent to Vegas where Pac’s murder is still unsolved. A federal prosecutor assigned to the case was concerned that discovery of the murder weapon will alert potential conspirators, and recommended that the gun does not get turned over to the LVPD.
Tupac’s brother was shocked to find all of this out when he met with the civil rights attorney producing the A&E series, Benjamin Crump. The network says they reached out to the LVPD and some officers are claiming the gun never got to them, meanwhile, others are just plain unsure. If anyone knows the current location of the Glock, they’re keeping it under wraps. / source: tmz.com
Meanwhile, this should not be considered news as it is already in September, 2017 the officers say their suspicions were later confirmed when they came across a gun in a cache of more than 3,000 guns held at the Compton Police Department. The .40-caliber Glock pistol was the same gun that killed Tupac, according to ballistics tests, and it had been found in the home of a woman whose boyfriend was a known associate of Anderson, who happened to be in Las Vegas the night of the Tupac shooting.
