On Friday, Las Vegas police detained a guy in connection with the Tupac Shakur death investigation.
According to the Associated Press, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department arrested Duane “Keffe D” Davis, 60, early Friday, more than 27 years after the rapper was killed in a drive-by shooting on the Las Vegas Strip on September 7, 1996.
Shakur, 25, died on September 13th, a week later. Davis was detained “on suspicion of murder,” according to two sources familiar with the accusation. According to the Associated Press, the authorities were unable to talk publicly about the situation since an indictment was expected later that day.
The arrest is the first in Shakur’s case, and it comes only weeks after the LVMPD raided a neighboring Henderson residence in connection with the rapper’s death.
“LVMPD can confirm a search warrant was served in Henderson, Nevada on July 17, 2023, as part of the ongoing Tupac Shakur homicide investigation,” Las Vegas police said in a statement in July.
On July 20th, the AP reported that police searched the home where Davis and his wife, Paula Clemons, resided for items “concerning the murder of Tupac Shakur.” Police seized “multiple computers, a cellphone and hard drive, ‘documentary documents,’ a Vibe magazine that featured Shakur, ‘purported marijuana,’ several .40-caliber bullets, two ‘tubs containing photographs’ and a copy of Davis’ 2019 tell-all memoir, ‘Compton Street Legend,'” according to the AP.
