Report: Tupac Shakur’s Alleged Killer Arrested in Las Vegas 27 Years After Drive By Shooting (Updating)


Reports from Las Vegas say that rapper Tupac Shakur’s alleged killer has been arrested.

Shakur was murdered in 1996. Until recently, the case had gone cold and there were no publicly acknowledged suspects.

The Associated Press says the suspect’s uncle Duane “Keffe D” Davis was arrested early Friday morning. Davis has long been known to investigators and has himself admitted in interviews and in his 2019 tell-all memoir, “Compton Street Legend,” that he was in the Cadillac where the gunfire erupted during the September 1996 drive-by shooting.
