LAS VEGAS (AP) — Authorities confirmed Tuesday they served a search warrant this week in connection with long-unsolved killing of rapper Tupac Shakur nearly 30 years ago.

Shakur ,was killed on the night of Sept. 7, 1996, in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. He was 25.

He was  one of the most prolific figures in hip-hop.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said the search warrant was executed Monday in the nearby city of Henderson. It’s unclear what they were looking for and where they were looking.

Shakur was gunned down while sitting inside a black car with Marion “Suge” Knight, head of Death Row Records.

Shot multiple times, Shakur was rushed to a hospital, where he died a week later.

No arrests have ever been made.
