Arrest Made in Connection to Murder of Tupac Shakur

( – On September 29, a man from Las Vegas was detained and arrested as being connected to the 1996 drive-by shooting death of rapper known as Tupac Shakur. He was killed on September 7 in Las Vegas, when he and Suge Knight, founder of Death Row Records, were on their way to a club.

The Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (LVMPD) arrested a man named Duane “Keffe D” Davis. He had claimed in 2018 to know who Shakur’s killer was. The formal charges against him include murder using a deadly weapon.

Sekyiwa “Set,” Tupac Shakur’s sister, has described this time as historic. The arrest, after 27 years of quiet concerning this case, has sent a strong message in her neighborhood. She acknowledged it as a win but said she would wait to pass an assessment until all the evidence and processes were in.

The Henderson, Nevada, residence of Davis was searched by LVMPD last July as part of their investigation into Shakur’s murder. Davis was indicted on a single charge of murder using a deadly weapon and a gang enhancer after the search warrant was executed and additional evidence was presented to the grand jury.

Davis is not just an emerging name when discussing the assassination of Shakur, as he has admitted in interviews and his book “Compton Street Legendhe was present in the car which the shots were fired from. He said that the man who shot Shakur was Orlando Anderson. Davis is a previous Crip who claims to be Anderson’s uncle. Davis claimed that Anderson was the shooter, although the now-dead Anderson had denied the claim.

Before the deadly shooting occurred close to the Vegas strip, Anderson was involved in a confrontation with Shakur and his entourage within the MGM Grand after a Mike Tyson bout.

The LVMPD confiscated a copy of “Vibe” magazine that included an article on Shakur, several mobile phones, the hard drive of a computer, and many plastic tubs full of old pictures during the search. Many .40 caliber rounds were also seized in the search.
