FOR OVER two decades, the late Tupac Shakur's drive-by shooting death remained a mystery.
A break in the case was made with the arrest of Duane 'Keefe D' Davis.
Who is Duane 'Keefe D' Davis?
On September 29, 2023, police arrested Duane 'Keefe D' Davis in connection to Tupac Shakur's homicide investigation.
Previously, Davis discussed his whereabouts on the day of Tupac's murder in his 2019 book Compton Street Legend.
In Compton Street Legend, the self-confessed gang member claimed he was riding in the passenger's side of the white Cadillac seen at the shooting.
Davis further claimed he handed the murder weapon to his nephew Orlando Anderson.
He alleged it was Anderson who fired the gun that ended 25-year-old Tupac's life.
Police insiders close to Las Vegas' homicide division told The U.S. Sun: "The homicide team did not enter into this investigation lightly.
"They knew that the world would be watching if they took any action against Keefe. They do not want to make any missteps.
"One key aspect was building a strong case and file of evidence detailing how Keefe was one of the four suspects in the car, was pivotal in the actual murder, then the destruction of critical evidence.

"Keefe’s own words and comments in his interviews and memoir obviously have him as a potential murder suspect.
"But there is a lot more to the case than simply showing a jury those statements.
"The detectives have been piecing together as much information, evidence, and witness statements about Keefe’s role that night and actions afterward."
The source further explained: "They have spent months pulling it together and continue to hunt down corroborating evidence and other possible witnesses for the grand jury.
"We expect this matter to become a criminal case imminently.
"Keefe has gloated so much about this that he has effectively talked himself into huge legal trouble.
"Who knows what Keefe will do? Maybe, he might try to negotiate a plea deal.
“The attention globally on the DA and police department will be extreme."
