Twenty-seven years later and the Las Vegas Police are still investigating the death of music icon, Tupac Shakur. The Las Vegas Metro police recently searched a home near the Las Vegas Strip in connection to its investigation into his death.

In September of 1996, Shakur was shot and killed one block away from the Strip. According to a report, the warrant to search the home involved Duane Davis, best known as “Keefe D”. At the time of this report, it is unknown how Davis is connected to the address.


Shakur was shot in the streets of Vegas (in the intersection of Flamingo Road and Koval Lane) after attending a Mike Tyson fight at the MGM Grand Plaza on Sept. 7, 1996. Despite being treated at a local hospital, the rapper later died on Sept. 13 from the injuries.

Speculation has remained on who exactly killed Tupac. A few years ago, a confession came out from Davis alleging he was an accessory to the shooting.

In a crime documentary, “Unsolved: The Tupac and Biggie Murders”, Davis is seen speaking openly about witnessing the murder. Furthermore, he address how he has immunity from prosecution due to his cancer which Is why Davis is confession nearly 20 years after the incident. Davis shares how he was in the car with other gang members from the Southside Crips: he was in the front passenger seat, Terrence Brown was the driver, while DeAndre Smith and Orlando Anderson were in the back.

In the video, Davis states the four men were heading to Suge Knight’s 662 Club seeking Tupac who recently had beaten up another gang member earlier in the day. However, he wasn’t at the club but did see him heading toward the club standing out the roof window of a car as they left the area.

“My partner bust a U,” Davis recalls the evening of the shooting in the documentary. “When we pulled up, I was in the front seat.”

“Going to keep it for the code of the streets. It just came from the backseat,” he stated on where the shots came from but did not say who pulled the trigger.
