Last week a search of Duane “Keefe D” Davis’ home was conducted in connection with the murder of Tupac Shakur; police found bullets inside the home that are currently being tested by forensic experts to see if they are connected with the 1996 shooting.
Orlando Anderson, the alleged killer of Tupac Shakur, is the uncle of Keefe D. Davis was also previously a member of the South Side of Compton Crips and has allegedly, more than once, admitted to assisting in the murder of Tupac.
Las Vegas police executed a search warrant for Keefe D’s home in Henderson, NV, which he shares with his wife, Paula Clemons. The police discovered several .40 caliber bullets during their search of the house. Vegas police say the bullets are being forensically tested “to determine if they have any link to the bullets found in 2Pac’s body or on the scene of the homicide.”
After the 1996 shooting of Tupac, police kept all of the forensic evidence from the crime scene and 2Pac’s body, from bullets to clothing, securely stored for close to 3 decades. Among the saved evidence is also the full lab analysis of the gun residue – shells, bullets, and powder – from the crime scene.
Police also seized computers, hard drives, and photos from the 1990s during the search of Keefe D’s house. In his book from 2019, Compton Street Legend, Keefe D confesses to being a part of the shooting that ended in Tupac’s death.
Davis wrote: “Tupac made an erratic move and began to reach down beneath his seat . . . It was the first and only time in my life that I could relate to the police command ‘Keep your hands where I can see them.’ Instead, ‘Pac pulled out a straw, and that’s when the fireworks started. One of my guys from the back seat grabbed the Glock and started bustin’ back. The first shot skinned Suge in the head. I thought the motherfucker was dead. I heard stories that Suge supposedly used Tupac as a shield when the bullets started flying. But that’s some bullshit. Suge was already wounded. As the rounds continued flying, I ducked down so I wouldn’t get hit. When the shooting stopped, we boned out.”
Police may execute more search warrants within the next few weeks, but no arrests have yet been made in connection with Tupac’s murder. Investigators will present the evidence found at Duane Davis’ house to a Las Vegas grand jury, who will determine whether an indictment will be necessary.
