A man from Nevada has been caught in connection with the long-unsolved murder of rapper Tupac Shakur. This gives Jada Pinkett Smith hope that the case will finally be closed.
“Now I hope we can find some answers and put this whole thing to rest. “R.I.P. Pac,” she wrote on her Instagram Story on Friday after hearing that Duane Keith Davis had been charged with murder with a deadly weapon to support a criminal gang.
Smith has talked a lot about the time she spent with Tupac. In an interview with Howard Stern last year, she said that she had “never in my life met a person like Pac.”
She said, “He had so much charisma.” Smith said that Shakur’s death was “really tragic” and that he had left a “very strong and powerful mark” on the world. “People are still inspired by him,” she said. “So he did his work.”
Davis, 60, also known as “Keefy D” or “Keffe D,” has said before that he was in the car that pulled up next to Tupac’s car on September 7, 1996, the night the rapper was shot in Las Vegas.
An indictment says that he took part in the shooting and got a gun “for the purpose of seeking retribution against” Tupac and Marion “Suge” Knight, the head of his record label Death Row and a longtime member of a rival group called the Mob Piru. The indictment doesn’t say Davis pulled the gun, but it does say that he and three other gang members planned to kill the rapper “by acting in concert throughout.”
At a news conference on Friday, Lt. Jason Johansson of the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department said that Davis was the “shot caller” for his group and that he “orchestrated the plan that was carried out.”
Clark County’s top prosecutor, Steve Wolfson, was happy about the charge.

“This is the indictment we’ve been waiting almost three decades for,” he said on Friday. “Justice will be served.”Officials said that Tupac’s death was caused by a fight that he and Knight had with a guy named Orlando Anderson, who was Davis’ nephew. The fight happened in the MGM Grand Hotel and Casino after a heavyweight fight between Mike Tyson and Bruce Sheldon.
Officials say that Davis got the gun that was used to kill the artist right away in order to get his own back. Anderson had been thought to have pulled the gun for a long time, but he had always denied it. Two years later, he died in a separate gang shootout. Tupac’s death and case have been the subject of plot theories, song lyrics, and movies for decades.
