Orlando Anderson
Born August 13, 1974(1974-08-13)
Died May 29, 1998 (aged 23)

Orlando Tive "Baby Lane" Anderson (August 13, 1974 – May 29, 1998) was an affiliate of the Southside Crips and is believed to be responsible for the murder of acclaimed American rapper Tupac Shakur. On the night of September 7, 1996 in Las Vegas Anderson and Shakur's entourage were involved in a scuffle at the MGM Grand Hotel just three hours before Shakur's shooting, which many believe led Anderson to shoot Shakur later that night.[1] Stories circulated that Anderson bragged about shooting the rapper, which he denied in interviews.[2] The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department considered Anderson as a suspect, however, they were unable to link him directly to the killing. Afeni Shakur; Tupac Shakur's mother, filed a wrongful death lawsuit against Anderson. The case was scheduled to go trial in September 1998, but due to Anderson's death, the trial never occurred.

On May 29, 1998, Orlando Anderson, Michael Stone, and his nephew, Jerry Stone were involved in a shootout outside a carwash in Compton, California. They died at Martin Luther King Jr.-Harbor Hospital (formerly King/Drew Medical Center) in Los Angeles, California. Michael Reed Dorrough was wounded and later arrested in connection with the shooting. No one was ever charged with the murder.[3]
