Tupac Shakur shot two off duty police officers who were assaulting a young man

Did you know that Tupac Shakur shot two off duty police officers who were assaulting a young man. Charges against Shakur were dropped because the officers were intoxicated and in possession of stolen guns.

 

In October 1993, in Atlanta, two brothers and off-duty police officers, Mark and Scott Whitwell, were with their wives celebrating Mrs. Whitwell’s recent passing of the state bar examination. As they crossed the street, a car passed by them or “almost struck them”, after which the Whitwells began an altercation with the driver and passengers, which was then joined by a second passing car. One officer was shot in the buttocks, and the other in the leg, back, or abdomen, according to varying news reports. There were no other injuries, but Mark was charged with firing at Shakur’s car and later lying to the police during the investigation, and Shakur with the shooting, until prosecutors decided to drop all charges against all parties
