Duane “Keefe D” Davis is in custody
Las Vegas, Nevada – Duane “Keefe D” Davis, a 42-year-old man, has been arrested for the murder of Tupac Shakur. He was arrested on suspicion of murder on Friday morning. Davis was in the Cadillac from which the gunfire erupted during the September 1996 drive-by shooting. He has admitted in interviews and in his 2019 memoir that he was in the car, but he has said that he did not fire the shots.
Tupac Shakur was a rapper and actor who was shot and killed in Las Vegas on September 13, 1996. The murder remained unsolved for decades, but authorities now believe that Davis is responsible. Davis has also said that he was in the front passenger seat of the Cadillac and had slipped the weapon used in the killing into the backseat, from where he said the shots were fired. He implicated his nephew, Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson, saying he was one of two people in the backseat. Anderson, a known rival of Shakur, had been involved in a casino brawl with the rapper shortly before the shooting.
Anderson died two years later and denied any involvement in Shakur’s death. Davis has described himself as one of the last living witnesses to the shooting. Shakur was feuding at the time with rap rival Biggie Smalls, who was fatally shot in March 1997. At the time, both rappers were in the middle of an East Coast-West Coast rivalry that primarily defined the hip-hop scene during the mid-1990s.
Davis is a known gang member who was affiliated with the Southside Crips, a rival gang of Tupac’s. Police believe that Davis was motivated to kill Tupac because of the rivalry between the two gangs.Davis has been charged with first-degree murder. He is scheduled to appear in court on Friday, September 29, 2023. He could possibly face a first-degree murder charge because the killing was premeditated. If convicted, Davis could face life in prison.
This arrest is a major breakthrough in the case of Tupac’s murder. It has been over 27 years since Tupac was killed, and his fans have been waiting for justice. This arrest brings hope that Tupac’s family and friends will finally get the answers they have been seeking.
