Duane “Keffe D” Davis has long been tied to the killing of Tupac Shakur. Now, however, it’s been revealed that 60-year-old Davis has been arrested and charged with murder all these years later.
As shared via the Associated Press, “Duane ‘Keffe D’ Davis, 60, has long been known to investigators as one of four suspects identified early in the investigation. He isn’t the accused gunman but was described as the ‘shot caller’ by authorities Friday at a news conference and in court.”
It appears that the investigation against Davis was reopened by police based on comments made by Davis in interviews and his 2019 memoir, “Compton Street Legend.” He stated in the memoir that he provided the gun used in the drive-by shooting, which in turn gave the police “admissible evidence.”
The news publication adds that “Davis was arrested early Friday while on a walk near his home on the outskirts of Las Vegas, hours before prosecutors announced in court that a Nevada grand jury had indicted the self-described ‘gangster’ on one count of murder with a deadly weapon.”
Furthermore, it was shared that “the grand jury also voted to add a sentencing enhancement to the murder charge for gang activity that if he’s convicted, could add up to 20 additional years.” This is surprisingly “the first-ever arrest in the case” and comes only a little “more than two months after Las Vegas police raided Davis’ home in the nearby city of Henderson for items they described at the time as ‘concerning the murder of Tupac Shakur.'”
Shakur died after being gunned down near the Las Vegas Strip in 1996. The case has been the subject of a variety of film and TV explorations, and considering that the case is mostly unsolved, this is a groundbreaking development.
