Las Vegas police have arrested former Crip member Duane “Keefe D” Davis in connection with the fatal 1996 drive-by shooting of Tupac Shakur.

According to the Associated Press, Keefe D was taken into custody early Friday morning on undisclosed charges related to Tupac’s tragic passing.

The West Coast icon was shot on Sept. 7, 1996, in Las Vegas while en route to a nightclub with Death Row Records co-founder Suge Knight following a Mike Tyson fight at the MGM Grand. While Knight and Shakur’s car was idling at a stoplight, a white Cadillac pulled up next to their vehicle on the passenger side, and an unidentified gunman fired 14 shots, hitting Shakur four times. He died several days later, on Sept. 13, 1996.

Keefe D had previously admitted in interviews and in his 2019 memoir, “Compton Street Legend,” to being present in the Cadillac from which the fatal shots were fired. He is also the uncle of the late Orlando “Baby Lane” Anderson, whom he implicated as the shooter.

Back in July, his Las Vegas home was raided in connection with the investigation of Tupac’s murder, and the police confiscated a Pokeball USB drive, a black iPhone, two iPads, and a purple Toshiba laptop, among other items.

Despite Keefe D publicly declaring his involvement in the murder, there are still those who believe in conspiracy theories surrounding Tupac’s death. In an interview with The Art Of Dialogue, Tupac’s biological father Billy Garland alleges that his son was targeted by government surveillance on the night of his assassination. Garland asserted, “It looked like a setup to me. Somebody told this guy [Orlando Anderson] to stand there with the Death Row thing and it led to what we had, but I don’t think he had anything to do with the death of my son.”
