Las Vegas police have reportedly arrested a man in connection with the murder of rapper Tupac Shakur nearly three decades ago.

The hip-hop legend was shot four times in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas in 1996. The identity of his killer has remained a mystery.

On Friday morning Las Vegas police arrested a man over his death, according to sources speaking to AP news agency.

Shakur was only 25 when he died.

He died on 13 September 1996, a week after he was shot four times in his car while waiting at a red light.

In a separate report, ABC News cited a senior law official who confirmed a suspect had been arrested in connection with the murder of Shakur and that charges would be announced on Friday afternoon.

The death of the rapper, one of the most acclaimed in hip-hop, has inspired several documentaries.

Shakur sold more than 75 million records worldwide, enjoying chart success with hits including California Love, All Eyez On Me and Changes.
