'He died in my arms': First cop at scene of Tupac's death slams rumors that hip-hop star is still alive
Chris Carroll was the first cop on scene of beloved rapper Tupac's death and has slammed any rumors that the rapper may still be alive.
Chris Carroll was one of the first cops on the scene of beloved rapper Tupac Shakur after he was shot multiple times in a drive-by shooting which cost him his life. The shooting took place in Las Vegas, and Tupac was pronounced dead though fans have remained hopeful that he is alive and hiding out.
It is reported that the 25-year-old had suffered multiple gunshot wounds to his vital organs. According to the official story, he passed away due to his injuries while at the hospital. No one has been convicted of his murder so far. Rumors and conspiracy theorists are of the belief that Tupac Shakur is alive and well and is hiding out in Cuba. Chris Carroll has slammed these conspiracy theorists who posted a video of a man claimed to be Tupac in Malaysia.
Carroll reminded fans and the theorists that Tupac died in his arms and revealed that Tupac's last words were "f*** you." As reported by the Sun, he said that Tupac "for all practical purposes" died on the scene in Las Vegas and is "absolutely not" hiding out in Malaysia nor Cuba. He also shared that the rapper's wounds were pretty severe and physically it is impossible for him to have escaped.
"He is absolutely positively dead. I know he means a lot to people, but the guy is gone and is never coming back. Just to clarify when I say gone - I don’t mean gone abroad - in case conspiracy theorists misconstrue that line. I mean he is dead. He had multiple gunshot wounds on his body. There were large caliber wounds to his torso and vital organs," he revealed. Chris added that he was stunned at the conspiracy theorists who think that Tupac's death was a massive hoax.
Chris also denied that Tupac revealed the name of his killer on his deathbed. Carroll recalls how he was on duty and riding a bicycle when he arrived on the scene of Tupac's death which took place in the year 1996. As he approached the car, Tupac "flopped out" and was sat with blood gushing out from his chest as he refused to name the shooter before uttering the final words "f*** you."
Tupac was then taken to a hospital and kept on life support for around six days before he passed away. "This happens every time someone very famous dies, it's very difficult for people to accept the fact that the person they admire so much is dead," Carroll added.
