Nearly 27 years after Tupac Shakur’s death, Las Vegas police announced that a search warrant was served in connection with the investigation into the murder of the hip-hop icon.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department executed a search at a home in Henderson, Nev., which is approximately 20 miles outside of Las Vegas. The police have released no additional statements.

On September 7, 1996, Shakur, who was a passenger riding in a car with then-Death Row Records CEO Marion “Suge” Knight, left the MGM Grand following a boxing match and was fatally shot. He was only 25 years old.
