Keffe D appears in court, charged in murder of Tupac Shakur

Duane Keith ‘Keffe D’ Davis, (left) the 60-year-old former gangster has reportedly admitted to participating in the drive-by shooting that claimed legendary rapper Tupac Shakur’s (right) life in 1996.

The 60-year-old man arrested last week in the killing of rapper Tupac Shakur appeared in court for the first time Wednesday in Las Vegas, where a judge opted to delay his arraignment for at least two weeks.

Duane Keith Davis, known as “Keffe D,” was expected to be arraigned on a charge of murder with the use of a deadly weapon in a gang-related homicide stemming from the fatal September 7, 1996, shooting. But when Davis appeared in court Wednesday, dressed in a Clark County Detention Center jumpsuit, he said his defense attorney needed two weeks to arrange to be present.

New footage has been discovered in the murder investigation of Tupac Shakur. In what could be his last public moments, Pac is seen talking with friends.

Las Vegas police are suddenly showing renewed interest in what happened to beloved rapper Tupac Shakur on that fatal night in September of 1996, when he was gunned down on the Las Vegas strip while in the company of music producer Suge Knight. And much like back then the two men at the center of the investigation, Crip gang boss Duane “Keefe D” Davis and his nephew Orlando Anderson are in the spotlight. 
But the assassination may not be as much as of a mystery as many think. Allen Hughes, who directed FX’s Emmy nominated docuseries Dear Mama, told ABC News, “In the community, as we know, and in the streets, there was never a mystery to who killed Tupac. It was always about Las Vegas law enforcement closing the case on this. What happened that night at the MGM Grand Casino and that violent incident that Tupac and gang had with that individual—again, that guy, everyone knows, came back and shot Tupac.”
Despite claims by Tupac’s father that his highly revered son posed a threat to federal law officials and his murder was a government conspiracy, Keefe D is expounding on his original story, that he was in the car with his nephew Orlando Anderson when it pulled up along side of a car with famed producer Suge Knight and Tupac  the back opened fire. Keefe D reportedly admitted in the past handing his nephew the gun that he allegedly used to kill Tupac following a brawl in a nearby Las Vegas casino.

“Good Morning America” and TMZ have detailed how armored vehicles and SWAT Teams swooped down on a quiet neighborhood in Henderson, Nevada, some 20 miles southeast of the intersection where 2Pac was shot and killed in Las Vegas.

Once on the scene, the SWAT Team trained their guns on a home and used a megaphone to order Keefe D and his family out of the home with their hands up.

Among the items retrieved included magazine articles about Tupac’s murder, computers, hard drives, and pictures from the 1990s that show individuals who might have been connected to people directly or indirectly involved in the 1996 drive-by shooting.


The home that metro Vegas cops searched is owned by a woman named Paula Clemons, the wife of Keefe D. What fascinates investigators and observers alike is that Clemons also owned a home in the notorious Los Angeles suburb of Compton. “TMZ” reported that The Los Angeles Sheriff’s Department long ago recovered a gun in the backyard of the home they said belonged to the then-girlfriend of a reputed Crip who was in Vegas the night Tupac was killed.

Tupac Shakur was shot multiple times on Sept. 7, 1996, in Las Vegas after attending a boxing match with Suge Knight. The platinum-selling rapper died in the hospital six days later from his injuries at the age of 25.

Authorities refused to divulge what they took from the home during the two-hour home search, but the evidence may be sufficient enough to be presented to a grand jury via the Clark County district attorney.
