Breakthrough in 1996 Murder of Rapper Tupac Shakur: Suspect Arrested
In a significant development, US police have arrested a 60-year-old man, Duane Keith Davis, in connection with the 1996 murder of legendary rapper Tupac Shakur. Tupac Shakur, a New York-born hip-hop icon, was fatally shot in a drive-by attack in Las Vegas at the age of 25.
The arrest comes following a long-running investigation into the murder. A grand jury in Nevada has indicted Davis, also known as “Keffe D,” on one count of murder with a deadly weapon, alleging that he planned the deadly shooting.
According to the authorities, Davis orchestrated the attack after his nephew, Orlando Anderson, had a confrontation with Shakur in a casino. Shakur was shot four times and died in the hospital a few days later.
Greg Kading, a retired Los Angeles police detective who had spent years investigating Shakur’s murder, noted that Davis is now the “last man standing” among the individuals directly involved in the case.
The arrest is seen as a significant development in a high-profile and long-unsolved case, shedding new light on the circumstances surrounding Tupac Shakur’s tragic murder in 1996.
