LAS VEGAS (KSNV) - Over the past couple of weeks, new details have surfaced about the death of Tupac Shakur.

A self-proclaimed drug kingpin now claims he was in the car when his nephew shot the rapper 22 years ago.

News 3 sat down with Las Vegas Metro Police Department Lieutenant Chris Carroll who was at the scene the night Tupac died.

On Sept. 7 1996, the rap legend and actor was shot in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas. He died on Sept. 13.

His murder is still an open investigation.

"I had Tupac in my arms as he was dying," Carroll said as he recalled the night he responded to the shooting.

Carroll says he tried to get Tupac to identify his shooter, but Tupac refused.
