The story went viral because Shakur, 34, shares the same name as iconic rapper Tupac Amaru Shakur who was fatally shot in 1996 at age 25 in Las Vegas.

Police say Shakur, who is homeless, beat an elderly man with a baseball bat while he sat on a bench, WPLG reported.

The victim told police Shakur walked up and began beating him “several times” with the bat around 11:30 a.m. Tuesday.

The elderly man snatched the bat away from her and ran inside the hospital. The woman pursued him inside and told hospital workers she was the one being assaulted.

After reviewing security footage, Hialeah police located Shakur later Tuesday night and arrested her.

The victim suffered several minor injuries but refused medical treatment. He told police he recognized Shakur from previous incidents around the hospital.
