Tupac Shakur: Man Arrested In Vegas In Connection To 1996 Murder

Nearly 30 years later, police have made an arrest in the 1996 death of rapper Tupac Shakur. Las Vegas police have arrested Duane “Keffe D” Davis in connection with the long-unsolved killing of the late rapper Tupac Shakur.

Davis has long been known to investigators and has admitted in interviews and in his 2019 tell-all memoir that he was in the Cadillac where the gunfire erupted during the September 1996 drive-by shooting. The shooting happened shortly after a casino brawl earlier in the evening involving Anderson, Shakur and others. He was 25 when he was gunned down and his fourth solo album, “All Eyez on Me,” remained on the charts, with some 5 million copies sold.

Greg Kading, a retired Los Angeles police detective who spent years investigating the Shakur killing, believes the investigation gained new momentum in recent years following Davis’s public descriptions of his role in the killing.

Davis is the last living person among the four people who were in the vehicle from which shots were fired at Shakur and rapper Marion “Suge” Knight. Kading believes that because the killing was premeditated Davis could face a first-degree murder charge.
