USA. Duane Keefe D Davis accused of murdering Tupac Shakur appeared in court


Duane “Keefe D” Davis, the former gang member accused of murdering rapper Tupac Shakur in 1996, made his first court appearance in Las Vegas. He has two weeks to provide explanations.

Duane “Keefe D” Davis, who has long been linked by police to the murder of Tupac Shakur and began sending public statements on the case in recent years, asked a Clark County Superior Court judge for two weeks to plead guilty. The judge agreed to the request and set the next hearing date for October 19.

Davis, who remains in custody, was indicted last week by a Clark County grand jury and arrested in Las Vegas.

The murder of Tupac Shakur

At a news conference last week, police showed surveillance footage of several men kicking and punching a person identified as Orlando Anderson, Duane Davis’ nephew.

Police suspect that David planned revenge for the beating of his nephew by Shakur and members of his group at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

“After obtaining the gun, Davis, Anderson, and two other men, Terrence Brown and DeAndre Smith, entered a white Cadillac and drove away to locate the black BMW in which Shakur was located,” police said.

When Davis and the others caught up with Shakur’s vehicle, shots were fired from the Cadillac at the passenger side of the BMW. Shakur was hit four times and died in hospital six days later. Authorities did not say who actually fired the gun at Shakur. The three remaining passengers in the Cadillac are already dead.
