Police search Las Vegas home in connection with Tupac’s murder

They're still searching for the legendary rapper's killer nearly 30 years after he was gunned down.

Police in the US state of Nevada have searched a home in connection with the murder of Tupac Shakur.

It's been nearly 30 years since the legendary rapper was gunned down by an unknown attacker and authorities haven't given up their search for justice.

In Nevada, there is no statute of limitations when it comes to murder, so officials have been carefully working through tips ever since that fateful night in 1996.

In the latest update on the investigation, police executed a search warrant in the nearby city of Henderson, which is just outside of Las Vegas.

The Associated Press reports The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department revealed they searched a property on July 17 and it was related to the murder investigation for Tupac.

Local news agency KLAS says police arrived at an address near Interstate 11 and Wagon Wheel Drive.

However, police spokesperson Aden OcampoGomez said they can't reveal whether the search warrant was performed at a home, business or other type of property.

He added that no more information can be provided as it is an open investigation.

2Pac was gunned down in Las Vegas back in 1996 after leaving a Mike Tyson boxing match at the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino.

An unknown assailant pulled up next to the BMW he was in on September 7 and opened fire.

Suge Knight, the boss of 2Pac's label Death Row Records, was also in the car at the time of the attack.

Tupac was rushed to a hospital, however was pronounced dead six days later.
