6 days after Shakur was shot, he died from his injuries from the shooting.

FIGHT NIGHT: Tupac Shakur attended the Bruce Seldon vs. Mike Tyson boxing match with Suge Knight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada. After leaving the match, one of Knight’s associates spotted Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson, a gang member from Compton,  California, in the MGM Grand lobby.

Earlier that year, Anderson and a group of Crips had robbed a member of Death Row’s entourage in a Foot Locker store. Knight’s associate told Shakur and Shakur attacked Anderson. Shakur asked him if he was from the South and punched him in the face, knocking Anderson to the ground. Shakur’s entourage, as well as Knight and his followers, assisted in assaulting Anderson. The fight was captured on the hotel’s video surveillance. It was broken up by hotel security. 

After the brawl, Shakur went with Knight to Club 662, which Knight had rented for the evening. Shakur disclosed to fiancée Kidada Jones his involvement in the Anderson fight, previously having pledged to return to her after entering the hotel where the fight had taken place and had her to stay in a vehicle. Shakur left with Suge Knight after changing clothes.
