On the 7th, Tupac went back toL.A.. Tupac decided he wasnt gonna go to Las Vegas, but toAtlanta to settle problems with some relatives instead. Suge gothim to change his plans though. Tupac told Kidada that morningthere was a heavy-weight bout that night at the MGM Grand , andweeks before hed promised Suge hed go to it with him.He also said he didnt want to go, but hed given Sugehis word. He said she could come along, not to the fight, hedidnt want her with that roudy bunch, but to the party Sugewas having afterward at a club he owned downtown, and if she werebeside him it would be ok. When they got back his house inCalabasas, Kidada started packing. When she reached for hisbulletproof vest that he always wore. Tupac said, "No,Itll be too hot." Then they left. They stopped at agas station and Tupac bought five magazines about guns. He readthem until they reached the Luxor Hotel. Tupac went toSuges mansion southeast of downtown. They partied for awhile. Tupac made a video of him calling Keisha and another girl.Then he went to the MGM Grand to watch the Mike Tyson/BruceSeldon fight. He was mad because Suge showed up at the lastminute. He sat in section 4, row E, seat 2. Tupac said, "Didyou see Tyson do it to him? Tyson did it to him! Did yallsee that? We bad like that. Come out of prison and now we runningshit." He went backstage and hugged Mike. At 8:45 P.M.,Travon Lane (Tray) was walking near the hotels Grand Gardenwith Death Rows crew. Tray pointed out Orlando to Tupac.Tupac ran down the hallway until he met up with Orlando. Tupacasked, "You from the South?" It escalated into a fightand Tupac started beating the shit out of him. Later the rest ofthe Deathrow crew arrived and helped him beat him up. There wasonly one bodyguard with the crew, and he had to pull Tupac out ofit twice. They knocked Orlando down and began kicking andpunching him. A security camera recorded the incident on tape.The fight was stopped by hotel security, and Orlando was held forquestioning by the police, then was allowed to leave after hedeclined to press charges. As left he gave his signed $1000tickets stub into the fight to a guy. He said, "Hereyou go, boy. Enjoy this." Tupac left at 8:55, to go back tothe hotel. Tupac went up to Hammers car and told me aboutthe incident that had just happen. Hammer asked him somequestions about it and he said it was all squashed and not toworry about it. While he was getting in his car he was braggingabout how Tyson took him out in 50 punches and all he had to dowas three punches and the dude was on the ground. Tupacsbodyguard said he had trouble getting him to wear his vest, andhe wouldnt wear it very often. He didnt wear it atall the whole night. Since they were in Las Vegas they legallycouldnt carry guns, but guns were brought anyways. Theywere in a hurry leaving the fight though, and the bodyguardforgot his gun in his car. When he got to the hotel he toldKidada, "Some nigga started a fight with me fornothin. Somethings up, you stay here." He wasalso upset because he couldnt find the Outlaws, who weresupposed to be at the fight. He changed clothes then went back toSuges house. They got ready for party at Club 662, where2Pac was going to perform. Tupac had wanted to drive his Hummer,but Suge said that they had things to discuss and got Tupac toride with him. Two hours later, Suge in his black, tinted-window96 BMW 750 sedan left the mansion with Tupac in thepassenger seat, and the 10-car entourage behind them. They werelistening to The Don Killuminati The 7 Day Theory very low in theBMW. At 10:55, Tupac rolled down the window and a photographertook their picture at a red light. At 11:00, they were stopped onLas Vegas Blvd. by Metro bicycle cops for playing his car stereotoo loud and for not having license plates, which were in thetrunk on his rented car. He was not cited and was released a fewminutes later. At a red light, on Flamingo Road, near theintersection of Koval Lane, in front of the Maxim Hotel two girlsdistracted Tupac and Suge on the drivers side, and at11:15, a white, four-door, late-model, Cadillac with Californiaplates pulled up. Tupac had been standing up through the sunroof. Two of the four men inside the car got out and firedthirteen rounds into the passenger side of the car, from a Glock.40 caliber handgun. He tried to get into the backseat, but Sugepulled him down, and a bullet bounced off of his right hip boneand hit is lung. He was also hit in his right hand and chest.Suge was barely hit by a bullet, and suffered a minor head wound.Immediately after the shooting, the Cadillac went south on Koval.Suge made a U-turn from the left lane of Flamingo and sped Westtoward Las Vegas Blvd., away from the nearest hospital. Suge saidthat he told Tupac hed get him to a hospital, and Tupacsaid, "I need a hospital? Youre the one shot in thehead." Patrol officers on an unrelated call at the MaximHotel had heard the gunshots and called for back-up. Two otherofficers followed the BMW, which took a left on Las Vegas Blvd.South, and police reached the car when it was caught in trafficat the intersection of Las Vegas Blvd. and Harmon Ave. Theofficers called an ambulance. The BMW was covered with blood andpieces of gold, from Tupacs jewelry, on the inside, and hadtwo flat tires. They brought Tupac out of the car and layed himdown on the stretcher.

When the police questionedthe bodyguard they continously asked if he had shot back, andwhen he said no they asked who had shot back.
