A self-described gangster who police and prosecutors say masterminded the shooting death of Tupac Shakur in Las Vegas in 1996 is due to make his first appearance today (Wed) before a Nevada judge.
60 year old Duane “Keffe D” Davis, was arrested Friday during an early-morning walk near his home in suburban Henderson. A few hours later a grand jury indictment was unsealed in Clark County District Court charging him with murder.
Grand jurors also voted to add sentencing enhancements for the use of a deadly weapon and alleged gang activity.
If Davis is convicted, that could add decades to his sentence.
Davis had been a suspect in the case, and publicly admitted his role in the killing of Shakur in interviews ahead of his 2019 tell-all memoir, “Compton Street Legend.”
