LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -
Seventeen years after he was gunned down near the Las Vegas Strip, the investigationinto the death of rapper Tupac Shakur continues.
On Sept. 7, 1996, Shakur was on his way to what was then known as Club 662 after attending a boxing match. On his way, a vehicle pulled up beside Shakur's car at the intersection of Flamingo Road and Koval Lane near what was then called the Maxim Hotel. Someone inside the second vehicle opened fire on Shakur, wounding him several times.
Shakur was rushed to University Medical Center, where he was placed on life support. He died six days later from internal bleeding.
Although police interviewed several people in connection with Shakur's death, no one has been charged with killing the rapper.
On Friday, Laura Meltzer, spokeswoman for Las Vegas Metro police, would not comment on the progress of the investigation into Shakur's death, but did say it was still open.
Meltzer said she encourages anyone with information about the rapper's death to contact the department or Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555.
Shakur was 25 years old when he died.
