Arrest Made in connection with 1996 Murder of Tupac Shakur, 27 Years Later

Arrest Made in connection with 1996 Murder of Tupac Shakur, 27 Years Later
Posted By: Sofía Montiel on September 29, 2023

Police took several items in July from a home connected to the man arrested in Tupac Shakur's murder

Police took various electronics and other items from a house they searched in July in connection with the investigation into Tupac Shakur’s ****.

The search warrant, obtained by CNN, names Duane Keith Davis and shows police were looking for “items that tend to show evidence of motive and/or the identity of the perpetrator such as photographs or undeveloped film, insurance policies and letters, address and telephone records, diaries, and other documents…”

The property records show that the target of the search, a home on Maple Shade Street in Henderson, Nevada, belongs to Paula Clemons who is married to Davis, also known as “Keffe D.”

Daivs is a self-proclaimed witness to Shakur’s 1996 fatal ****.

A law enforcement source told CNN Friday that Keffe D was arrested in Las Vegas in connection to Shakur's ****.

Police took several tablets, an iPhone and five computers from the home when they executed the warrant on Monday. Also taken were USB and hard drives, photographs and “purported marijuana,” along with a copy of “Vibe” magazine about Tupac, and a copy of the book “Compton Street Legends” by Keffe D with Yusuf Jah.

The affidavit requesting the warrant shows police were looking for, among other items, “notes, writings, ledgers, and other handwritten or typed documents concerning television shows, documentaries, YouTube episodes, book manuscripts, and movies concerning the murder of Tupac Shakur.”

Items seized from the Las Vegas home also included a copy of the memoir Davis authored detailing street gang life and the murder of Shakur.

Arrest made in connection with 1996 murder of Tupac Shakur

Police have made an arrest in Las Vegas in connection with the 1996 murder of rapper Tupac Shakur, a law enforcement source told CNN.

The source, with knowledge of the investigation, confirms the man arrested Friday morning is Duane Keith Davis, aka “Keffe D,” whose Henderson home was searched in July as part of Las Vegas Metro Police Department’s ongoing investigation into the ****.

Las Vegas police officials are expected to hold a press conference later Friday, the source said.

What we know about the man arrested in connection with the death of Tupac Shakur

The man arrested in connection with the 1996 murder of rapper Tupac Shakur was identified as Duane Keith Davis, aka “Keffe D,” a law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation, told CNN.



Davis wrote a book about the rapper's **** detailing street gang life and the murder of Shakur.

Police found a copy of the memoir while searching a house in July that belonged to Paula Clemons who is married to Davis.

In the book, Davis describes himself as one of only two living witnesses to Shakur’s ****, the other being Marion "Suge" Knight, former CEO of Death Row Records, who is now serving time in prison for manslaughter in an unrelated case. Knight was driving the car in which Shakur was a passenger when the rapper was shot.

Davis is believed to be the uncle of Orlando Anderson, who has long been suspected of being involved in Tupac’s murder, a charge he denied to CNN before his death in a gang-related **** in 1998.

In a 1998 interview with BET, Davis said he was in the front seat of the other car — the one that came up alongside Shakur’s automobile — when shots rang out from the backseat.

“Going to keep it for the code of the streets,” Davis said when asked between the four men in the car, who was responsible for pulling the trigger. “It just came from the backseat, bro.”

Three hours before the ****, MGM casino surveillance video shows Shakur, Suge Knight and their entourage attacking Anderson, an L.A.-area gang member.

Tupac Shakur's stepbrother calls arrest in connection with rapper's murder "bittersweet"

The news of an arrest made in Las Vegas in connection with the 1996 murder of Tupac Shakur is “bittersweet,” the rapper's stepbrother Mopreme Shakur said.

“We have been through decades of pain. They have known about this guy, who been running his mouth, for years,” Mopreme Shakur said.

Police arrested Duane Keith Davis, aka "Keffe D" on Friday morning, a law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation told CNN. He is a self-proclaimed witness to Shakur’s 1996 fatal ****, CNN has reported.

Sheriff confirms the arrest of Duane Keith Davis in relation to Tupac Shakur's murder

Police arrested Duane Keith Davis, 60, in connection to the murder of rapper Tupac Shakur, officials announced in a news conference Friday.

Sheriff Kevin McMahill, with the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department, said the arrest happened Friday morning.

While the investigation into Shakur's death started 27 years ago, "it is far from over," McMahill said.

The sheriff said his police department "methodically built this case to move forward with an arrest," while also working to build a "successful prosecution," he said.

Earlier Friday, a law enforcement source with knowledge of the investigation had told CNN that Davis was arrested in connection with Shakur's ****.
