UPDATE 11:55 A.M. PST: OMG they ARE charging Keefe D with the murder!
Prosecutors announced in court Friday that Davis, one of the last living witnesses to the drive-by, was also the man behind it all! Chief Deputy District Attorney Marc DiGiacomo said Davis was the “on-ground, on-site commander” who “ordered the death” of Tupac!
A grand jury viewed evidence for months and finally charged the 60-year-old gangbanger with murder with use of a deadly weapon! Wow. After all this time, is this really the man who did it??
The Tupac Shakur murder case isn’t cold anymore!
Las Vegas police have made an arrest in relation to the 1996 drive-by shooting that took the life of the hip hop icon.
Per the AP, on Friday morning the LVPD arrested Duane “Keefe D” Davis — though the charges have not yet been made public. An expanded indictment is expected to be released later in the day. Two months earlier, on July 17, cops raided his wife’s home searching for items “concerning the murder of Tupac Shakur.”
Keefe D is a well-known member of the South Compton Crips, as well as a friend of rappers Eazy-E and Diddy. He has long been a person of interest in the shooting of Tupac and even admitted in his memoir Compton Street Legend that he was in the car that night on the Vegas strip.
Do the Las Vegas police have their man? Is he the one who killed Tupac? Or is this just the next step in the investigation? We’ll know soon enough…
