Tupac Shakur was shot on this spot on September 7, 1996. The two power poles nearest the spot have been covered with graffiti fan tributes. The poles are painted over every couple of years, but the condolences keep returning.

The two poles, about 100 feet apart, are one block east of The Strip, along the south side of E. Flamingo Rd, just west of its intersection with Koval Lane.

Where Tupac was Shot

Not much to see; it's more about knowing what happened right where you're standing. Not a lot of parking, but not a bad walk.

[Steve Braun, 04/19/2023]

The Tupac assassination spot has become the site of a DIY memorial, with messages still left by fans, even though it happened over a quarter-century ago.
