Gun used in Tupac's murder was found in Compton backyard in 1998

The gun used to kill the beloved rapper in an unsolved drive-by shooting in Las Vegas was allegedly found in a man's Compton, California backyard in 1998. But somehow, between then and now, law enforcement seems to have lost track of it.

That bombshell information comes from a police document dug up by producers of the A&E docu-series, "Who Killed Tupac?".

In 2000, L.A. County Sheriff's Dept. took over law enforcement of Compton, and 3,800 confiscated firearms - including that Glock - were transferred to the LASD. According to the doc, he recognized the address where the gun was found as the home of the girlfriend of a prominent Crip member. known to have beef with Pac. Deputy T. Brennan was the one who discovered that this was the weapon connected to Tupac's murder.

The most practical theory revolving around Tupac's murder is that he was shot by Crips after punching Orlando Anderson in the MGM grand after a Mike Tyson fight.

It's now come to light that the murder weapon was found two years after his death, but subsequently went missing when it was handed from one police force to another.

NLRB 'Joint Employer' Ruling Favors Business
"The 2015 Browning-Ferris ruling stacked the deck against small businesses and inserted uncertainty into day to day operations". Rather, there will be a return to the original test which focuses on the degree of direct and immediate control by employers.

According to the A&E documentary series Who Killed Tupac?

The deputy immediately ordered ballistic testing, and bam - the results were a match for the firearm used to kill Tupac.

Unfortunately, federal prosecutors stopped the gun from being sent to Las Vegas Police who were investigating the case in fear "that the weapon's discovery might tip off any conspirators involved in his death". 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.

The news reportedly stunned Tupac's brother when A&E told him what they knew. "The Glock pistol was positively identified as the firearm used in the murder of Tupac Shakur".
