WATCH: Police Arrest Suspect In Legendary Rapper Tupac Shakur’s Murder


After nearly 30 years police have finally announced that they made major headway in the investigation revolving around the homicide of legendary rapper Tupac Shakur.

On Friday, Las Vegas law enforcement announced the arrest of suspect Duane Davis in connection to the 1996 shooting of the lauded musician.

Davis has long been on the radar of investigators and was reportedly one of four suspects that police focused on during the lengthy investigation.

Here’s what we currently know about the recent arrest of suspect Duane Davis:

Dom Lucre presented this 2018 clip of suspect Duane “Keffe D” Davis reportedly confessing to playing a role in the alleged 1996 shooting of the legendary rapper.

The Associated Press clarified:

He [Davis] isn’t the accused gunman but was described as the group’s ringleader by authorities Friday at a news conference and in court.

In Nevada you can be charged with a crime, including murder, if you help someone commit the crime.

“Duane Davis was the shot caller for this group of individuals that committed this crime,” said Las Vegas police homicide Lt. Jason Johansson, “and he orchestrated the plan that was carried out.”

Radio host and influencer Brandon Tatum broke down the recent arrest of suspect Duane Davis nearly 30 years after the alleged crime occurred.

Breitbart seemed to cast some doubt on the claims made by police and asked: “Have they really solved Tupac’s murder after all this time?”

CBS News provided a short biography on Davis:

Davis was a leader of the South Side Compton Crips gang when he planned his revenge against Shukar, police said. In 2019, he released a tell-all memoir called “Compton Street Legend.”

In the memoir, he said he had risen up the ranks at the South California notorious gang to become a “shot caller,” and was running a multimillion-dollar drug empire nationwide.

Born in Watts, California, Davis and his family moved to Compton, then a “middle-class family-oriented neighborhood for Black families,” he said.
