The gun that was used to kill Tupac Shakur was found 19 years ago - but its current location remains a mystery.

The mysterious death of rapper Tupac Shakur has been shrouded in mystery for decades.However, now there's some more info to add to the conversation - and it's juicy stuff, because it suggests there was a police cover-up in the investigation.

The producers of "Who Killed Tupac?' say that investigators were concerned about violence breaking out given that the weapon was linked to a Crips member who had 'beef" with Tupac.

In 2006, a Sheriff's deputy working on the unsolved 1997 murder of Notorious Los Angeles discovered that the Compton address where the gun was found had belonged to the girlfriend of a prominent Crips gang member.

The performer was gunned down on the Las Vegas Strip following a Mike Tyson fight on September 7, 1996, and would die from his injuries nearly a week later at Nevada hospital.

According to editors at the USA gossip website, a federal prosecutor assigned to the case expressed concerns the discovery of the weapon might alert potential conspirators and issued a recommendation not to turn the gun over to the LVPD.

When A&E contacted the LVPD some officers weren't sure if the gun was ever received while others definitively said it didn't get to them.

Reggie Wright Jnr, who has been always been linked to claims he was involved in the shooting of Tupac, laughed off the claims he had anything to do with it.

In 1995, Tupac claimed that Biggie knew of a planned robbery that had resulted in Tupac being shot and losing valuable jewelry.

It claimed that Shakur and several of their entourage had beaten up Anderson the same day as the shooting. As if the gun discovery was not surprising enough, Tupac's brother, Mopreme Shakur, claimed that he had no idea that a gun which was presumably related to Pac's murder was discovered, let alone the fact that it was tested positive as the gun behind his brother's death.

Tupac himself reportedly refused to tell the cop who found him after the shooting who his killer was, simply saying 'f**K you'. This is America. We found Bin Laden'.

The final episode of "Who Killed Tupac?" will air on Tuesday night.
