As BLACK ENTERPRISE reported, the Los Angeles Police Department arrested Duane “Keffe D” Davis and charged him with murder for his role in the Sept. 13, 1996, shooting death of Shakur and he is expected to face indictment. As People Magazine reports, Jada Pinkett Smith enjoyed a close personal relationship with the late entertainer; they attended the Baltimore School of the Arts as high schoolers.
Pinkett Smith continued, “Once you paid attention to him he kind of sucked you in. And we hit it off from that moment on.”
Using Instagram’s Stories feature, Pinkett Smith posted a black image with white lettering that read, “Now I hope we can get some answers and have some closure.”
Smith closed the statement with “R.I.P. Pac,” and a dove emoji.
Here’s the indictment for Duane “Keffe D” Davis in Tupac’s murder, via Clark County DA.

After news that Davis had been arrested for his role in the murder of Shakur broke, many users on Twitter/X called attention to the fact that Davis had admitted several times on camera that he drove the killer to the intersection where Tupac was killed.
Court reporter Meghann Cuniff shared the indictment, which also names the South Side Compton Crips and indicates that Davis procured the gun used in the murder in order to get revenge on Shakur and Death Row Records owner Marion “Suge” Knight. Davis discussed his role in the shooting of Tupac on the popular platform Vlad TV, and said it was actually his nephew, Orlando Anderson, who pulled the trigger. Davis is the only surviving member of the group who coordinated the murder of Shakur in 1996.

In a press conference on Sept. 29, the Las Vegas Police Department Sheriff Kevin McMahill reassured the public that the department never stopped being dedicated to finding the people responsible for killing Shakur, saying, “There’s been many people who did not believe that the murder of Tupac Shakur was important to this police department. I am here to tell you that that was simply not the case.”
According to Nevada state law, a person can be charged with a crime, even murder, though your only involvement is assisting them in it.
Keefe has willingly and openly been talking about his involvement for 27 years. I knew they were eventually going to arrest and charge him. Even though it was his nephew, Orlando, who later passed in 1998, that took Tupac’s life, Keefe was one of the accomplices in the car. https://t.co/cIuVNmbgdJ
