Tupac Murder Suspect to Face Trial Next Year

On Tuesday (November 7), a Nevada judge ordered Duane “Keffe D” Davis, a former street gang leader charged with the 1996 murder of Tupac Shakur in Las Vegas, to stand trial on June 3.

Davis was arrested for murder at the end of September, almost precisely 27 years after Shakur was shot in a drive-by shooting. Death Row Records co-founder Marion “Suge” Knight, imprisoned in 2018 for unrelated manslaughter, was also wounded in the car with Shakur. Police say Davis led the murderers and is not the triggerman.

Only Davis remains a suspect. Orlando Anderson, Davis’s nephew and alleged gunman, died in a firefight two years after Shakur’s death. Terry Brown and Deandrae Smith, two more accused, died before being charged. Davis told BET’s Death Row Chronicles in 2018 that he was at the crime scene and knew who killed Shakur but was

going to keep it for the code of the streets.

Do you think Keefe D should be found guilty of being in association with Tupac’s murder?
