Man who gang informants in Compton, California March 21 [10:00 EST] — Orlando Anderson, the say murdered rapper Tupac Shakur, put in a public appearance Thursday morning on CNN to profess his innocence.
„I want to let everybody know, you know what I’m saying, I didn’t do it,“ Anderson said in the CNN interview. „I been thinking that maybe I’m like a scapegoat or something,“ he added.
Anderson’s lawyer, Edi M. O. Faal was also on hand for the interview, saying, „This young man is almost acting like a prisoner now. He is very careful where he goes, he is very careful when he goes out.“
Anderson denies that he’s a member of the Crips gang, but police in his hometown of Compton disagree.
CNN did not ask Anderson about allegations that he was involved in another murder last April, and a subsequent shooting last October.
