The New York Police Department said it was investigating a report by AllHipHop.com, which claims to have the exclusive confession of the man who shot and robbed Tupac Shakur in 1994.

A man named Dexter Isaac, currently serving life in prison in New York on a murder-for-hire scheme, said that James Rosemond — better known as “Jimmy Henchman” — paid him $2,500 to carry out the deed.

Rosemond is currently on the run from authorities following an indictment over his alleged involvement in the cocaine trade.
