On the night of November 30, 1994, about 12:25 am, the day before the verdict in his sexual abuse trial was to be announced, Shakur was shot five times and robbed after entering,
two companions, the lobby of Quad Recording Studios by two armed men in army fatigues.
Tupac Shakur, who was struck twice in the head, twice in the groin and once in one hand, was taken to Bellevue Hospital Center. The second man was shot twice in the abdomen.
The third man with Tupac was not injured.
The three robbers fled after taking money or property from the three men, said Sgt. James Coleman, a Police Department spokesman. Tupac would later accuse Sean Combs, Andre Harrell, and Biggie Smalls—whom he saw after the shooting—of setting him up.
In his first studio album to be posthumously released (Makaveli, “Against All Odds”), Pac accused Henchmen of setting him up.
Shakur also suspected his close friend and associate, Randy “Stretch” Walker, of being involved in the attempt. In the day that followed, Shakur entered the courthouse in a wheelchair and was found guilty of three counts of molestation, but innocent of six others, including sodomy. On February 6, 1995, he was sentenced to one-and-a-half to four-and-a-half years in prison on a sexual assault charge.

A man has admitted to being involved in the attack on rap star Tupac Shakur in 1994, inside Manhattan’s Quad Studios in November of 1994, after allegedly being paid $2,500 dollars by James “Jimmy Henchman” Rosemond.
Dexter Isaac, a former friend of Rosemond, is an inmate currently serving life in prison for murder, robbery and other offenses.
Isaac came forward Wednesday (June 15th) with the information on the eve of what would be Tupac’s 40th birthday.
Isaac was indicted by the government in 1998 and was subsequently sentenced to life in prison for murder, robbery, fraud and witness intimidation charges.
