Who has been arrested by Las Vegas Police in connection to Tupac Shakur’s fatal shooting?

In a surprising turn of events, Duane “Keffe D” Davis has been arrested by Las Vegas police for his alleged involvement in the fatal shooting of legendary hip hop artist Tupac Shakur. The arrest comes 27 years after the incident took place on the city’s infamous Strip.

The news of Davis’ arrest was first reported by AP, citing “two officials with first-hand knowledge of the arrest” who chose to remain anonymous due to non-authorization to speak publicly. Reports suggest that Davis is scheduled to face an indictment on Friday.

Davis Admits Involvement in Tupac Shakur’s Murder

According to various sources, Davis has been linked to Tupac Shakur’s death through his own admissions. In his memoir, titled “Compton Street Legend,” Davis claims to be one of the last living witnesses to the shooting and even confessed to providing the gun used in the crime.

In the memoir, Davis states that he was seated in the passenger seat of a Cadillac alongside his nephew Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson, with DeAndre “Dre Smith” in the back seat. Allegedly, Terrence “T-Brown” Brown was driving the vehicle. However, Anderson denied Davis’ claims and was killed two years later. Davis further confirmed his presence in the Cadillac during a 2018 interview with BET.

Tupac Shakur, who was riding as a passenger in a BMW driven by Suge Knight, sustained fatal injuries in a drive-by shooting on September 7, 1996. The fatal shots were fired from the Cadillac, leaving Shakur hospitalized for a week before his untimely death.

Radar Online reveals that Davis has made at least five public confessions regarding his connection to Tupac’s murder.

“It’s those events that have given Las Vegas the ammunition and the leverage to move forward,” retired Los Angeles detective Greg Kading shared with AP. “Prior to Keefe D’s public declarations, the cases were unprosecutable as they stood. He put himself squarely in the middle of the conspiracy. He had acquired the gun, he has given the gun to the shooter, and he has been present in the vehicle when they hunted down and located both Tupac and Sug (Knight).”

The recent arrest follows a search conducted by Las Vegas police at the home of Davis’ wife on July 17. During the search, authorities confiscated several items, including computers, a cell phone, a hard drive, a Vibe magazine featuring Tupac Shakur, .40-caliber bullets, photo albums, and a copy of Davis’ memoir.
