4. USA – The Shooting of Tupac Shakur


It was September 7th 1996 – a balmy night in Las Vegas, Nevada. Thousands of people flocked to the glitzy city to watch the Heavyweight Title boxing match between Mike Tyson and Bruce Sheldon. It was the hottest ticket in town: celebrities and millionaires streamed into the MGM Grand to watch the fight.

It only took Tyson 50 seconds to knock Sheldon out. Some spectators had not even made it to their seats yet and it was all over.

Tyson and Sheldon’s was not the only fight of the night. Around 8:30, an altercation had broken out in the main lobby of the MGM Grand. The man who threw the first punch was hip-hop sensation, Tupac Shakur. His entourage jumped in to support him, but the fight did not last long. Security guards at the MGM broke it up in half a minute.

Tupac and his men went to the hotel where he was staying, so he could change and get ready for his midnight performance at a new club, owned by his music producer and manager, Suge Knight.

But he never did make it to that performance. By the end of the night, the 25-year-old Tupac Shakur was dead.
