The Untold Story of KEEFE D | Allnewshit
Duane “Keffe D” Davis proclaimed the bold comment to an officer as he sat in the backseat of a police cruiser following the historic and long-awaited capture on Sept. 29.
“So what they got you for, man?” the officer asked.
“Oh man, the biggest case in Las Vegas history,” Davis responded before he was asked if it was a recent incident.
“Sept. 7, 1996,” Davis added, referring to the night Shakur was gunned down in a drive-by shooting on the Las Vegas strip.
Davis was indicted for murder with the use of a deadly weapon with a gang enhancement over the death of the “All Eyez On Me” rapper.
Prosecutors called the 60-year-old the “on-ground, on-site commander” and “shot caller” who ordered Shakur’s death.
Davis was one of four people inside the white Cadillac that pulled up alongside Shakur but said his nephew Orlando Anderson was the one who fired the gun, fatally striking the rapper four times.
He is the only person charged in the killing of the 25-year-old rapper, as the other three inside the vehicle have since died.
Police arrested Davis as he was on his early morning walk.
Davis walked past two undercover cops who had staked out in an unmarked pickup truck moments before he was captured.
“Hey Keffe, Metro Police, come over here,” the one officer said before grabbing Davis’ right wrist and guiding him over to the vehicle.
The accused murderer complied with the police during their search, only requesting a drink of water as he was cuffed.
While Davis was being transported to the police headquarters, he pressed officers with several questions about his arrest.
“Were you all following me last night,” Davis asked the officer transporting him to the department’s headquarters.
“So why y’all didn’t bring the media,” “Why would we bring the media?”
“Because that’s what y’all do,” Davis replied.
Davis made his first appearance in Las Vegas Court on Wednesday.
After the brief hearing, Davis was brought back to his solitary cell at the Clark County Detention Center, where he will remain until his next court on Oct. 19 for his plea hearing.
