Las Vegas PD Videos Show People Detained In Raid Linked To Tupac Killing

Duane "Keffe D" Davis, one of the last living eyewitnesses to the rapper’s murder, was named in the search warrant that executed in July

Newly released footage from a raid conducted by the Las Vegas SWAT team shows a couple who have been linked to the killing of Tupac Shakur.

According to CBS News,  on the night of July 17, a search warrant was executed "concerning the murder" of Shakur at the home of Duane "Keffe D" Davis, who is reportedly one of the last living eyewitnesses to the rapper’s murder, although the couples' faces are blurred in the footage.

In the video, the authorities call over a bullhorn for anyone in the home to exit immediately.


“This is the Las Vegas Metropolitan police department, we have a search warrant for the residence, you need to come out with your hands up," the officers repeatedly say.

“Open the front door, we have a search warrant, come out with your hands up, go head and open up that door," they continued. "Walk back to the sound of my voice."

In another video, one officer was on the phone with the woman inside the home and he asked her to exit through the garage and remain calm.

"I want you to stay on the phone with me," the officer told her. "Open up that door, OK?"

"Please don't shoot me," the woman is heard saying in response.

Moments later, the couple emerged from the garage and walked slowly down the driveway to turn themselves over to the officers.

"Who you looking for? Me?" the man asked as the police zip-tied his hands behind his back.

When the officers asked the man for his name, the audio of the video was cut off as he gave his answer. He informed the officers that he was alone with his wife inside the home.

While the footage does not show the actual police search, the authorities seized several items from the homes including magazine articles featuring Tupac as the main subject, computers, hard drives, and pictures from the 1990s that reportedly show individuals who may be connected to the killing, and a copy of Davis' book, Compton Street Legend.

In the autobiography, Davis first disclosed his alleged involvement in Tupac's murder in a closed-door meeting with federal and local authorities in 2010. At the time, he was facing life in prison on drug charges before consenting to speak with law enforcement.

"They promised they would shred the indictment and stop the grand jury if I helped them out," Davis wrote.

On September 7, 1996, Shakur was killed in a drive-by shooting on the Las Vegas strip as he rode as a passenger with then-Death Row Records CEO Marion "Suge" Knight. The two were leaving the MGM Grand following the Mike Tyson-Bruce Seldon heavyweight championship fight.

Knight’s black BMW was stopped at a red light at East Flamingo Road and Koval Lane on the Las Vegas Strip, a white Cadillac pulled up to the vehicle and opened fire, striking Shakur multiple times.

Six days later, Shakur died at the University Medical Center of Southern Nevada.

More than 20 years ago, Duane "Keffe D" Davis reportedly confessed to his involvement in Shakur’s killing to the Los Angeles Police Department.

Davis also claimed that his nephew, Orlando Anderson, shot and killed Shakur, with a gun that he handed to him after the rapper and his entourage assaulted Anderson at the MGM Grand hotel. In 2019, Greg Kading, a retired LAPD homicide detective who investigated Shakur's death, said Davis should have been arrested. However, Anderson denied any involvement in Shakur’s death.

In May 1998, Anderson was killed in an unrelated gang shootout in Compton, Calif., according to The Los Angeles Times.

Considered one of the greatest rappers of all time, Shakur sold more than 75 million records worldwide with numerous multi-platinum albums including Me Against the World, All Eyez On Me, and The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory.
