Police in Las Vegas have arrested man in connection with the death of US artist Tupac Shakur

The Associated Press reported on Friday that Las Vegas police detained a man on suspicion of murder in the killing of hip-hop icon Tupac Shakur, who was assassinated in the city over three decades ago.

According to the Associated Press, Duane “Keffe D” Davis was detained early Friday morning, but the particular charge or charges were not immediately known. An indictment was expected later that day.

Reuters was unable to reach Davis or his legal team to corroborate the allegation.

A request for comment from the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department was not immediately returned.

Davis’ involvement in Tupac Shakur’s death, according to the publication, is well documented. He apparently claims to be “one of the last living witnesses” to Tupac Shakur’s shooting.

Duane revealed in his biography “Compton Street Legend” that he informed federal and local authorities in 2010 that he observed the murder and provided the pistol. He stated he was a passenger, with his nephew Orlando ‘Baby Lane’ Anderson in the back seat alongside DeAndre “Dre Smith.” The Cadillac was purportedly driven by Terrence “T-Brown” Brown.

Shakur was a Grammy-nominated rapper, activist, and actor who sold over 75 million albums worldwide. Among his hit songs were “California Love” and “Keep Your Head Up.”

Police announced in July that they had searched a residence outside of Las Vegas in relation to Shakur’s death.
