By ABUBAKAR YUNUSA
In a stunning turn of events, Las Vegas law enforcement officials have apprehended a suspect believed to be linked to the tragic murder of legendary rapper Tupac Shakur, who was fatally shot on September 7, 1996, at the age of 25 during a drive-by incident after leaving a boxing match at the MGM Grand Hotel.
For nearly three decades, the identity of Tupac’s killer has remained a mystery, leaving a gaping void in the annals of hip-hop history.
However, recent developments have shed light on this long-standing cold case.
According to the Associated Press (AP), the suspect in question, identified as Duane “Keffe D” Davis, was arrested on Friday
Davis’ arrest comes two months after Las Vegas police raided his wife’s home on July 17 in neighbouring Henderson. Documents said police were looking for items “concerning the murder of Tupac”.
Davis has long claimed that he was not one of the shooters.
Tupac’s murder occurred amid a bitter feud with the Notorious B.I.G., his rap rival who was also fatally shot six months later.
In 2017, Tupac was posthumously inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame by Snoop Dogg.
He was also honoured with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in 2023, a testament to his legacy as an award-winning rapper, activist, and actor.
With over 75 million records sold worldwide, his contributions to the music industry continue to resonate with global audiences
