In a stunning development to a case that has captivated the public for decades, U.S. police have charged Duane “Keffe D” Davis, a former gang leader, with the 1996 murder of iconic rapper Tupac Shakur.
The Tragic Loss of Hip-Hop Legend Tupac Shakur
Shakur, the New York-born hip-hop legend, was tragically gunned down in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas at the young age of 25, suffering four gunshot wounds.

This dramatic turn of events sheds light on a long-standing mystery that has haunted both the music industry and law enforcement.
Davis as “the Last Man Standing”
Greg Kading, a retired Los Angeles police detective who dedicated years to investigating Shakur’s murder, expressed his lack of surprise regarding Davis’s arrest.
Kading referred to Davis as “the last man standing” in this case, as all other direct conspirators or participants are deceased.
Davis’s Role In the Case
In court, prosecutor Marc DiaGiacomo portrayed Davis, a former leader of the South Side Compton Crips street gang, as the “on-ground, on-site commander” who orchestrated Shakur’s murder.
The motive behind this act traces back to a fight between Shakur and Davis’s nephew, Orlando Anderson, that erupted in a casino shortly before the fatal shooting on September 7, 1996.
Security Camera Footage
Officer Jason Johansson revealed that security camera footage from the casino showed Anderson being assaulted, leading to a retaliatory shooting targeting Shakur when he stopped his car at a red light.
This act of violence made it evident that the crime was gang-related, a fact that had been reviewed multiple times over the years.
New Information Emerges in 2018
However, a breakthrough finally emerged in 2018 when new information came to light.
Johansson highlighted Davis’s “own admissions” to media outlets that he was present in the vehicle from which the fatal shots got fired.
Sheriff McMahill’s Statement
In an emotionally charged press conference, Sheriff Kevin McMahill acknowledged the long and painful wait for justice that Shakur’s family had endured over the course of 27 years.
He emphasized that the LVMPD had consistently aimed to hold those responsible for Tupac’s murder accountable.
McMahill’s heartfelt words were a stark reminder that Shakur’s murder was indeed significant to the police department, despite doubts from some quarters.
Tupac Shakur’s Iconic Legacy
Tupac Shakur, known by his stage name as 2Pac, burst onto the music scene with his debut album in 1991. As one of the most celebrated names in hip-hop, his tragic death inspired numerous documentaries.

In June of this year, the legendary rapper received a posthumous star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, cementing his legacy as an influential figure in both music and film.
