He went from fighting to “I can’t do it.” And when he made that transition, he looked at me, and he’s looking right in my eyes. And that’s when I looked at him and said one more time, “Who shot you?” He looked at me and he took a breath to get the words out, and he opened his mouth, and I thought I was actually going to get some cooperation. And then the words came out: After that, he started gurgling and slipping out of consciousness. At that point, an ambulance showed up, and he went into unconsciousness … Tupac never came out of it, and he never said anything at the hospital. There was nothing else.
