Law enforcement in Las Vegas has apprehended a Nevada man, identified as Duane Keith Davis, also known as “Keefy D” or “Keffe D,” who is believed to be the last surviving suspect investigated in the 1996 shooting of Tupac Shakur. Although the exact charges against Davis were not immediately clear, he was arrested in connection to the long-unsolved case of Shakur’s slaying. Tupac Shakur, the renowned rapper, was fatally shot in a drive-by shooting on September 7, 1996, in Las Vegas and succumbed to his injuries on September 13.
According to law enforcement sources, Davis was taken into custody, and a statement from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department indicated that a news conference was scheduled to discuss “an arrest made in the murder of Tupac Shakur.” Davis is the last known survivor among the four individuals suspected to be in the car involved in the attack on Shakur. Orlando Anderson, Davis’ nephew, had long been suspected of firing the fatal shots but was killed in a gang shooting in Los Angeles in 1998.
In July, a search warrant was executed at Davis’ residence near Las Vegas, specifically seeking laptops and other electronic devices related to the decades-long investigation. The incident involving Shakur occurred while he and his entourage were in Las Vegas for a heavyweight boxing match between Mike Tyson and Bruce Sheldon. They were stopped near East Flamingo Road and Koval Lane when a Cadillac pulled up alongside and someone inside the car opened fire, critically injuring Shakur. Retired LVMPD Lt. Chris Carroll, who was present at the scene, recalled pulling Shakur out of the car and speaking to him while he was still alive but breathing heavily.
