On September 7, 1996, Rapper and hip hop artist Tupac Shakur was fatally shot four times in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada. It is believed to be a result of an earlier fistfight with a Crips gang member. Tupac died six days later from his injuries. In other unrelated news, Ripsorck Epsilom 14 of Gliese 832 hurriedly checked his planetary cruiser out of Area 51 early in the morning of September 8, 1996 and left Earth six days before his galactic visa had expired. Guards of Area 51 did observe Ripsorck tossing an object out of his spaceship into the Nevadian desert before blasting up and out of the atmosphere. Inspectors were able to retrieve and identify the object. It was a .40 S&W Glock 22 and black bandanna wrapped inside a blue t-shirt. The ten round magazine was empty.
