Las Vegas authorities arrested Duane “Keefe D” Davis on Friday for the 1996 murder of Tupac Shakur.
Davis was charged with one count of murder with a deadly weapon and with the intent to promote, further or assist a criminal gang. Hours later, the legendary rapper’s pre-fame friend, Jada Pinkett Smith, shared her thoughts on the development.
“Now I hope we can get some answers and have some closure. R.I.P. Pac,” she wrote on her Instagram Stories. At one point, 2Pac’s murder seemed destined to be a cold case forever as decades passed without any indictments.
Prior to his passing, 2Pac built a personal relationship with Pinkett Smith while attending the Baltimore School for the Arts together.
Earlier this month, she shared her enduring love for 2Pac, uploading a video of the then-teenagers lipsyncing to DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince’s “Parents Just Don’t Understand.”
Pinkett Smith later married The Fresh Prince, better known as Hollywood actor Will Smith, in 1997.
