by Patrick Wilson
Las Vegas, Nevada – On September 29, 2023, Las Vegas police arrested a man on suspicion of murder in the 1996 drive-by shooting of rapper Tupac Shakur. The suspect, identified as Duane “Keffe D” Davis, was taken into custody early Friday morning.
Davis is alleged to have been a member of the Southside Crips gang, which was involved in a long-running feud with Shakur’s Eastside Crips gang. On September 7, 1996, Shakur was shot four times in a drive-by shooting while riding in a car with Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight. Shakur died six days later from his injuries.
The Tupac Shakur murder has been one of the most notorious unsolved murders in American history. Over the years, there have been numerous theories about who killed Shakur and why, but no one has ever been arrested in connection with the crime.
The arrest of Duane Davis is a major breakthrough in the Tupac Shakur murder case. It is unclear what evidence police have linking Davis to the crime, but his arrest suggests that they may finally have enough to solve the case.
Davis is scheduled to appear in court on Monday, October 2, 2023. He remains in custody without bail.
The news of Davis’ arrest has been met with mixed reactions from the public. Some people are skeptical that he is the real killer, while others are hopeful that this will finally bring closure to Shakur’s family and friends.
Only time will tell whether Duane Davis will be convicted of the Tupac Shakur murder. However, his arrest is a significant development in a case that has been unsolved for over 27 years.
